Kaley Cuoco's Instagram page typically focuses on photos of Kaley's dogs and life events like Ryan Sweeting's recent surprise party.

Kaley took a break from sharing her happy home life with followers over the weekend, however, in order to mourn the death of James Garner, the beloved actor with whom Kaley co-starred for two seasons on the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules.

"I woke up with a broken heart today," wrote Kaley beneath a photo of Garner. "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 work beside him and receive his bear hugs every day. I love you gramps."

Kaley went on to share several photos of herself and Garner alongside their 8 Simple Rules co-stars Amy Davidson and David Spade.

"I'm seriously the luckiest girl in the world getting to spend time w the one and only Grampa Jim," Kaley captioned one shot of herself and Garner. "We lost a good one."

Garner's role on Rules was just one of many beloved parts played by the iconic actor in his long and incredibly diverse career.

He is perhaps best remembered for portraying the title characters on Maverick and The Rockford Files, as well for his five-decade career as a film actor.

Garner passed away on Saturday at age 86.
