The sudden passing of her 'Friends' co-star is said to be 'a completely devastating blow' to the Rachel Green depicter, who lost her father John Aniston less than a year before.

AceShowbiz - While Matthew Perry's "Friends" co-stars are all mourning his shocking passing, Jennifer Aniston is reportedly having the hardest time following the loss. The actress is said to be "struggling most acutely" among the cast after Matthew died on October 28.

"Out of the remaining five, Jen and Courteney [Cox] are reeling the most, and Jen is probably the one who is struggling most acutely," a source tells Page Six of how Jennifer and her co-star Courteney Cox are dealing with their friend's death.

But this is allegedly particularly a difficult time for Jennifer, who just lost her father John Aniston less than a year ago. "It's a second massive loss in less than a year, with the one-year anniversary of her dad's death just around the corner," the source notes.

"She still hasn't fully regained her footing from that, and now this has just completely knocked her off her feet," the informant adds. "She is trying to regroup and recover but it's been a completely devastating blow."

Jennifer was seen among the "Friends" cast who attended Matthew's funeral on Friday, November 3. While they joined the intimate service, Jennifer, Courteney, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc did not join family and close friends for the latter part of the funeral, where Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush's hit "Don't Give Up" was played.

Matthew's father John Bennett Perry, mother Suzanne Morrison, stepfather and "Dateline" correspondent Keith Morrison were among family members in attendance. Matthew's family carried his coffin inside Forest Lawn Church for a funeral service, with Keith as one of the pallbearers.

According to The Sun, the final proceedings were at The Courts of Remembrance which is a special, more secluded area. "That part was only attended by Matthew's family and closest friends. Less than 20 people," a source told the site. "After the services, friends left while his family and few others took a car up to the area where the coffin was taken and then carried into The Courts of Remembrance."

Matthew was found unconscious by his assistant in a jacuzzi at his home in Los Angeles on October 28. The official cause of death has not been given, though it's suspected that he had a cardiac arrest. Police have ruled out foul play and fentanyl or meth overdose as the cause of death, but autopsy results are pending a toxicology report.
