Actor Ryan Reynolds, known for movies like Marvel’s Deadpool, took to Instagram Saturday to wish his young friend Connor McGrath a happy 14th birthday.

McGrath, who lived in Edmonton and had roots in Newfoundland and Labrador, was 13 when he died of leukemia earlier this year.

Reynolds and McGrath met through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It was McGrath’s wish to see Reynolds’ film Deadpool before its official release.
