The cast of American Horror Story‘s many iterations took to social media over the weekend to mourn the loss of Freak Show actress Rose Siggins.

Siggins, who portrayed Legless Suzi on the show’s fourth season, died on Saturday morning at age 43, her manager James Mullen confirmed to PEOPLE. The actress was born with sacral agenesis, a rare genetic disorder, and suffered from both kidney and pancreas issues her entire life.

Many of the actress’ co-stars from Freak Show and the series’ other seasons shared memories of Siggins and well-wishes for her family on Saturday and Sunday.

Sarah Paulson tweeted a photo of herself with Siggins and Jessica Lange, with the caption “love this.”

“The AHS family lost one of our own,” she wrote. “Rose Siggins was an absolute light… I will never forget your laugh or your beautiful eyes.”

She also urged her followers to consider donating to the GoFundMe page set up to help the actress’ family pay for her medical expenses and to support her two children, Luke and Shelby.

“Please consider helping to support her family at this difficult time,” Paulson, 40, wrote. “Two more spectacular children never existed.”

Angela Bassett, who appeared on the third, fourth and fifth seasons of the anthology series, also took to Twitter to remember Siggins.

“@RoseSiggins Your life touched mine & made it’s lasting impression,” Bassett wrote. “Of love, grace, courage & beauty. God’s angels sing thee to thy rest.”

Gabourey Sidibe, who was on two seasons of the show – including Freak Show – wrote, “So sorry to hear of the passing of Rose Siggins. I pray for her children. Please donate if you can.”

Dennis O’Hare and Naomi Grossman, two more AHS alums, also shared tributes and encouraged followers to help Siggins’ family.

“Today we mourn Rose Siggins who died today,” O’Hare wrote. “Please consider helping the two children she leaves behind.”

Grossman, known by show fans as Pepper, used a quote from Lange’s Freak Show character to honor Siggins.

“‘A carny’s life burns and brighter than most. It is bound to extinguish sooner.’ -Elsa Mars @AHSFX #RIPRoseSiggins,” she wrote.

Siggins appeared as herself on Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Extraordinary People before being cast on AHS. Despite her condition, Siggins was able to carry and give birth to “a normal child,” twice – the first woman with sacral agenesis to ever do so, according to her website.
