The Goldbergs dedicated Wednesday’s episode to beloved actor George Segal who passed away in March from complications following heart surgery. After eight seasons on the show, it was Segal’s final appearance as the character Albert “Pops” Solomon. The episode ended with a montage of touching moments from over the years.

Segal’s co-stars, like Wendi McLendon-Covey, also paid tribute to the Oscar-nominated actor on Twitter. “We’ll love you forever,” tweeted McLendon-Covey. “See you in our dreams.”

There was also mourning and a massive outpouring of appreciation from fans on social media, as the emotional tribute touched everyone.
