“The father of memes, I still remember in the early days of FB pages it was all about sharing Chandler jokes or wholesome scenes from Monica and his relationship. We forgot that there was another person behind the character. A person who helped a lot of people with passion, and held a smile as long as he can,” reads the caption to the video shared on Instagram by Roshan Vadassery.
