After 10 seasons saving lives at Seattle Grace, Dr. Cristina Yang is saying goodbye to Grey’s Anatomy.

The move is bittersweet for actress Sandra Oh, who will pursue other projects but still keeps the lovably tough character close to her heart. In honor of Oh’s departure, ABC put together a retrospective video showing highlights from her relationship with main character Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), her on-screen BFF – or as Yang would say, her “person.”

Watch them laugh, cry and yes, even hug in the clip, which doesn’t spare viewers from a rehashing of Season 3’s heartbreaking fallout after Cristina was left at the altar and Meredith picked up the pieces.

The season finale of Grey’s airs Thursday, May 15 at 9 p.m. (ET) on ABC.
