Michael Douglas is thankful for the support from friends, family, and fans after the death of his father Kirk Douglas. He was 103 years old.

In a new Instagram post, Douglas posted a picture of him kissing his father’s head. He expressed how grateful he was for the tributes to his father ever since he passed away.

"Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful words,'' he wrote. "Our family is so grateful for your support and we send our love to everyone!"

Michael Douglas made the announcement last week on social media about his father's death.

“It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103,” his son Michael Douglas said in a statement. “To the world, he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to.”

Michael Douglas continued, "To me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was simply Dad, to Catherine [Zeta-Jones], a wonderful father-in-law, to his grandchildren and great grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband.”

He further added, "Kirk’s life was well lived, and he leaves a legacy in film that will endure for generations to come, and a history as a renowned philanthropist who worked to aid the public and bring peace to the planet," Michael added. "Let me end with the words I told him on his last birthday and which will always remain true. Dad- I love you so much and I am so proud to be your son."

One his most notable roles was in the 1960 film "Spartacus," which he also executive produced.
