Dallas - Linda Gray Carries On Hagman's Sunset Tradition

Dallas star Linda Gray toasts her late pal Larry Hagman with a glass of champagne at sunset whenever she's at home to witness the end of the day.

The actor, who played J.R. Ewing - Gray's former Tv husband on the show, passed away a year ago (Nov12) after losing his battle with cancer, and his longtime pal has taken up his penchant for raising a glass to the dipping sun.

Gray tells Closer magazine, "Every day at sunset, Larry would do this weird thing - he would raise a glass of champagne as the sun was setting, and he would say, 'Bong! Bong!' and make this sound like he was hitting a gong.

"I flew back into Dallas on Larry's birthday (this year). I unpacked a few things, and it was almost sunset. So I ran to the window, told him, 'Happy Birthday', and said, 'Bong! Bong!' I wanted this condo, so that every time I was here at sunset, I could do that and say hello to him."
