7 November 26th, 2012 Patrick Duffy Issues Heartfelt Statement On The Passing Of Larry Hagman!


Yesterday, Patrick Duffy (Bobby, Dallas) issued a statement on the death of his longtime co-star and friend Larry Hagman.  For more than 14 seasons Duffy and Hagman ignited the screen as the Ewing Brothers on CBS’ original Dallas, then returned to the highly successful TNT reboot of Dallas last year and were in the midst of filming season two.

Duffy stated: “Friday, I lost one of the greatest friends ever to grace my life. The loneliness is only what is difficult, as Larry’s peace and comfort is always what is important to me, now as when he was here. He was a fighter in the gentlest way, against his obstacles and for his friends. I wear his friendship with honor.”

Hagman died Friday afternoon and lost his battle with cancer surrounded by family, friends including Duffy and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) in a Dallas Hospital.  

As fans worldwide continue to mourn the loss of Hagman, it is so touching to know how close Duffy and Hagman, as well as Gray, were to each other up until the end.
