Don Orsillo shared a heartfelt message on Friday honoring his longtime friend and broadcast partner Jerry Remy, who died last October following a long battle with lung cancer.

“I find it hard to accept the fact that I am about to have my first season in the Major League without the friendship and the advice of this guy. #Remy2RIP #I miss you everyday

Orsillo and Remy spent 15 years together calling Red Sox games. It’s clear that Orsillo, now the play-by-play announcer for the San Diego Padres, will always treasure the time he spent with Remy.

The Red Sox will wear the No. 2 patches all season to honor Remy. They will also hold a special ceremony ahead of their April 20 game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
