Actress Laurel Griggs passed away at age thirteen on Tuesday (November 5).

The teenager died in New York City's Mount Siani Hospital after she was rushed there following a severe asthma attack, Page Six reported. Friends and family have since shared their fond memories of the starlet on social media.

"The world lost a real princess who only wanted to make the future happy for all," Griggs' grandfather, David Rivlin, wrote in a Facebook message. "Acting was a just a childhood dream come true and she had big plans for the future."

Actor Lucas Papaelias dedicated a sweet Instagram post to her. "My @oncemusical family tragically lost one of our youngest members this past week. We are heartbroken & devastated… We will never forget this sweet, talented, young soul."

On Friday (November 8), Griggs was laid to rest with her entire school, Clinton School, in attendance for her funeral. A memorial service will be held Sunday (November 10).
