We've been visiting friends in Chicago area since Wednesday, so I didn't hear about Larry Hagman's passing until this morning; very sad news, but not unexpected. He's had other close brushes with death prior to now, but I guess this is the one he couldn't walk away from.

One of my favorite Larry Hagman stories was what a little old lady supposedly asked him what did his mother think of him playing such a sneaky liar as J.R. Ewing.
Hagman replied - his mother thought about the same of his role, as he did when she played Peter Pan.
LOL! I like that ! That remark is exactly the kind of thing I would expect to hear from a person like Larry Hagman !
I wonder how many on the forum still remember his mother, the late, GREAT Mary Martin from her iconic role in the musical, "South Pacific"?

Rest in peace, Larry Hagman - you were an icon and a great actor.
My thoughts exactly; thank you Asturias.
