“‘You can’t make old buddies,'” Bush wrote in the caption.” @laurawbush and I will miss this good man.”
Bush continued, taking special notice of Rogers’ legendary music career, which included hits like”The Gambler,””Lady,””Islands in the Stream” and”Lucille.”
“I could not believe it this morning once I got up, turned to the TV checking to determine what the coronavirus was doing, and they explained that my friend and singing partner Kenny Rogers had passed off,” Parton said in a video listed within her home.
“We all know Kenny is in a better place than we are now, but I’m for sure he’s going to be talking to God sometime now, if ain’t already, and he is definitely going to be requesting him to spread some light on this shadow going on here. However, Kenny was loved by me with my heart. My heart’s broken. A large ol’ chunk of it has gone with him now and I think I can speak for all his loved ones, his friends and lovers, when I say that I will always love him”
Parton subsequently showed off a framed photograph she had inside of her house of her and Kenny.
“I just happened to have that picture once I awakened this morning ,” Parton said as she broke into tears. “I walked out and thought,’Well, maybe I’ll hold that up for everyone,’ so I know you’re sad as I am but God bless you Kenny. Fly straight into God’s arms. And to the rest of you, keep the faith”
