"I still cannot completely express the shock and impact from the news that Larry Hagman has passed," Barbara wrote in a statement, posted on her Facebook account, late Friday night. "I can still remember, that first day on Zuma Beach with him, in the frigid cold.

The actress went on to share her condolences with Larry's spouse, Maj, and his family, over their heartbreaking loss.

"I, like many others believed he had beat Cancer and yet we are reminded that life is never guaranteed. My deepest condolences go out to his wife Maj, his son and daughter and his grandchildren, as well as his friends in this time of his passing. I can honestly say that we've lost not just a great actor, not just a television icon, but an element of pure Americana," she wrote.

"Goodbye Larry, there was no one like you before and there will never be anyone like you again," Barbara concluded.
