27-year-old Vine user Ryan McHenry, who became famous for his “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal” series, once told The Verge:

As a filmmaker, I like to have a conclusion to things. The only conclusion I can see out of this whole thing is to have Ryan Gosling respond to this. Even if it’s just him eating cereal..

Yesterday, after hearing McHenry succumbed to a 2 year battle with bone cancer, Gosling gave all of us the conclusion this meme deserved, and followed it with this Tweet:

My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry’s family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way. May 5, 2015

Fuck cancer.
