Aww man I was looking forward to seeing him in season 2 of the new Dallas….R.I.P Larry your going to be missed.

Great actor, what a loss. RIP.

# 5

So sorry , I will miss you.

# 6

Very sad and he will be missed. So incredibly sweet that those who obviously meant very much to him were by his side.

I never believed that people who become successful together in movies, tv, or music had to be close friends years later because of that shared experience like many fans expect. However, it is especially wonderful to see it in the cases where it does happen.

RIP Mr. Hagman. My concolences to his family.

I was just thinking about him today. He’s a true legend. Don’t think Dallas 2.0 can survive without him.

I use to watch Dallas without a miss! My goodness you never knew what JR was up to, he was good at it. In real life though I heard he is a wonderful nice man. Good to hear Lynda and Patrick were there by his side. I am sorry to hear of his leaving us, he will be very missed but never forgotten………….

he was one of the greats
i enjoyed his acting very much
he lived a long life and got to do what he loved

His trademark “JR grin” will most definitely be missed on season 2 of the new Dallas. RIP sir, and thank you for entertaining us for so many years.
