DAVID Cassidy lamented "so much wasted time" to his heartbroken daughter as he lay on his death bed.
Katie Cassidy revealed her father had left her with the daily reminder before the actor and musician died at the age of 67 this week, surrounded by those he loved.
Devastated Katie shared her father's last words, writing on Twitter: "Words cant express the solace our family’s received from all the love & support during this trying time. My father’s last words were 'So much wasted time'.
"This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute….thank you."
An actor and writer herself, Katie was deluged with messages of support after sharing the heart-wrenching words uttered by her father.
David, who shot to fame as Keith in 1970s TV sitcom The Partridge Family, had been admitted to hospital in Florida last week after suffering multiple organ failure.
Words cant express the solace our family’s received from all the love & support during this trying time. My father’s last words were “So much wasted time”. This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute….thank you.

His devastating death was confirmed by his representative, who said: “On behalf of the entire Cassidy family, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy.
“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long.
“Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years.”
His nephew Jack told his Twitter followers: “My uncle David Cassidy has sadly passed away tonight… & in the process of mourning I can't help but thank God for the joy that he brought to countless millions of people! I don't think I'm alone in saying that we will all miss him. God Speed!”
Following the news of his death, tributes from those who worked with David poured in.
Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson tweeted: “There were times in the mid-1970s when he would come over to my house and we even started writing a song together.
“He was a very talented and nice person. Love & Mercy to David and his family.”
Harry Connick Jr. told his fans: “So sad to hear of the passing of David Cassidy…He was always so kind to me – such a pleasure to have had him on my show… Sending love and prayers to his family… R.I.P. friend.”
After leaving The Partridge Family, Cassidy became a solo superstar, selling out concerts across the world – including six shows at Wembley Stadium over one weekend in 1973.
His success continued into the 1980s, when he performed "The Last Kiss" alongside George Michael, who cited him as one of his major influences.
Cassidy released 12 studio albums, six compilations and 24 singles during his illustrious career.
