"The first time I saw him he was sweeter than s-, Plaid jacket and belt too tight, he wasn't even doing a bit."

Sandler was Farley's co-star on various skits of the popular late night show. Offstage, the pair were also close friends.

Sandler explained:

"We told him, "Slow down, you'll end up like [John] Belushi and [John] Candy."

But Sandler said his buddy retorted: "Those guys are my heroes. That's all fine and dandy."

In closing, Sandler sang:

"The party came to an end. We flew out to Madison to bury our friend. Nothing was harder than saying goodbye."

On Tuesday, other stars took to Twitter to remember their old friend. Stephen Colbert described Farley as "sweet and smart and funny."

David Spade, Farley's closest friend, shared several videos of the actor in the movie "Tommyboy." On Twitter, Sandler posted: "We all miss you bud."

Before sharing the SNL stage with Farley, Sandler got started as Pip in 1994's "Airheads."

He has come a long way since then and it's sad he won't have his friend to share the journey with.
