The time has come to say goodbye to our beloved doctors Arizona Robbins and April Kepner. 

 

Taking to social media, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and and show creator Shonda Rhimes shared moving tributes to actresses Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw as they wrapped up filming for Grey's one last time. 

"Today, in the midst of scheduled mania of #Scandal series finale, two beautifully talented women filmed their last scenes at #GreysAnatomy," Rhimes shared. "Having these things happen at the same time is almost impossible to process. I need to devote a whole day just to celebrate Jessica and just to celebrate Sarah. To tell you stories about their talent and to tell what I know about what their roles have meant."

 

"A social media post won't cut it and I will not minimize their magic by pretending it will. I have more to say. I will do so," she continued. "For now I will just say how lucky we were to witness their talents and the magic they brought to their characters."

What a blessing you are and what a contribution you made to television history. Lit that screen up with your glow on the LGBT community... making a difference and making it all look so easy... GOAT.

Pompeo's post began with her thanking Capshaw for making strides in the LGBT community, writing, "Boom... @thank you @jessicacapshaw for bringing it the way you have brought it for 10 amazing years... what a blessing you are and what a contribution you made to television history. Lit that screen up with your glow on the LGBT community... making a difference and making it all look so easy... GOAT #representationmatters #loveyou."

 

She then went on to share another sweet tribute for Drew, penning, "THANK YOU to this [email protected] you served up the sugar and spice for 9 years and it's been a blast. Your passion and talent for storytelling has touched so many people provoked thought and Greys is a better show because of it and you. #japrilfansdontplay." 

 

Capshaw and Drew's unexpected exit from the hit ABC show was announced in March and fans have still yet to grasp the sad news.
