Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, like the rest of us, is mourning the loss of her dear friend, James Garner, whom she affectionately called, "Gramps" or "Grampa Jim."

The Big Bang Theory star posted several sweet notes on Instagram about the man she worked with on 8 Simple Rules.

“Well I woke up with a broken heart today. The world has lost a legend. James Garner was a gift to our business and an example of honesty and pure class. It was an honor to have worked beside him and receive his bear hugs every day. I love you gramps,” she posted along with a vintage photo of The Notebook star.

In the show, which ran from 2002-2005, Cuoco-Sweeting played Bridget Hennessy, the granddaughter of Garner’s character.

Garner died Sunday at the age of 86 from natural causes. He was found in his Brentwood home.

In another post she wrote, "This is all I can think about right now. Love you, Grampa Jim."

And finally, she posted one of just the two of them with the caption, "I'm seriously the luckiest girl in the world getting to spend my time w the only and only Grampa Jim. We lost a good one."

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is not the only one to share their loss on social media. Sites were flooded with fond memories of the Maverick star.

Yes, Grampa Jim, you will be missed.
