Jordan honored Boseman in a tribute posted on Instagram Monday.

Michael B. Jordan, who portrayed Killmonger in "Black Panther", gave Chadwick Boseman emotional appreciation on Instagram after Boseman died of colon cancer on August 28 at the age of 43.

Jordan wrote that he would "spend the rest of my days living the way you did" and praised Boseman's kindness on his Instagram post. Jordan is one of many creatives who pay tribute to Boseman, who has also appeared in hit films like "Da 5 Bloods", "42" and "Get on Up". Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler posted a tribute to Boseman on Sunday, while Avengers co-star Jordan Peele, Lena Waithe and Mark Ruffalo shared their honors last Friday.

Jordan's tribute can be read in full below:

I've tried to find the right words, but nothing comes close to my feeling. I've thought about every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug … everything.

connected

connected

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we talked you said we were forever connected, and now the truth means more to me than ever. You have paved the way for me since almost the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old. They showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you knew it or not … I watched, studied and am constantly motivated by your size.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you gave the world … the legends and heroes you showed us we are … will live on forever. But what hurts the most is that I now understand how much you are a legend and a hero. In doing so, you have never lost sight of what you loved most. You took care of your family, your friends, your craft, your spirit. They took care of the children, the community, our culture and humanity. You took care of me You're my big brother, but I never got the chance to tell you or actually give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I am now more aware than ever that the time for people we love and admire is short. I will miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor and your incredible gifts. I will miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I dedicate the rest of my days to life like you did. With grace, courage and without remorse. "Is that your king?" Yes . he. is! Rest in power brother.
