It’s never easy saying goodbye, especially when it’s unexpected, but ABC’s fan-favorite comedy The Goldbergs managed to pay tribute to star George Segal with a touching sendoff.

The actor who portrayed Pops for eight seasons died on March 23 due to complications from bypass surgery. In the show’s April 7 episode, “Couple Off,” Segal made his final appearance in the role, and the series made sure to honor his memory with a sweet post-show compilation.

In the 45-second clip, ABC and Sony Pictures Television pulled together different moments throughout Segal’s run on the comedy, highlighting some of the more meaningful scenes he shared with his costars. The segment is “Dedicated to our friend, George.”

And don’t miss the sweet hugs Segal shares with his costars.

The video tribute concludes with a simple, “We will miss you, George.” Watch the sentimental montage for yourself below.
