Hilarie Burton dedicates a tattoo to late Willie Garson

Hilarie Burton is paying a tribute to her White Collar co-star Willie Garson.

Turning to her Instagram on Wednesday, the actor shared a bunch of Garson's photos along with a picture of her tattoo which read 'calm down.'

"The world knows that willie.garson has been a pivotal player in my life," she wrote. "So I will not be able to fully articulate my feelings here. I'm gonna need some time. jeffreydeanmorgan and I are devastated."

"Willie was a romantic friend," Burton continued. "Deeply thoughtful. Intentional with his effort and attention and devotion. Social media is ablaze right now with evidence of that … each person in his life felt special. Spoiled, even. Willie most definitely spoiled me."

"He would pay you the biggest compliment in the world ... And right as you'd blush, he's temper it with, 'Alright, calm down!' And then laughter," Burton recalled of her late friend. "He'd stop you before you could rebuff the compliment. Calm down. I can hear him saying it."

"Before I went to see him, I needed him to know how I felt," she continued. "And hudsonvalleytattooco was so kind and understanding and got me in the night before my flight. I wanted Willie to know that I was carrying that 'calm down' with me forever."
