I thank you for your devotion to entertaining so many people that came to enjoy your performances. I remember when you played at Gold Rush Junction so many years ago. Sittin alongside the railroad tracks. You have a wonderful family, may the good Lord embrace all of you and give you strength in the following days ahead. He will be remembered by so many, he definitely left a place in many hearts. God speed and God bless all of you on your loss. Such a great guy.

I am 43 years old and I grew up going to Dollywood every year for vacation. We never missed Randy’s show! My Dad had been going to the Smokey’s since the 60’s with his grandfather. I can remember meeting Randy after his show on many occasions. We also ran into him with his family once at Shonet’s in Pigeon Forge. I have a lot of great memories of those vacations and seeing Randy every year. I am sad that he is gone and I am praying for his family. I lost my Daddy to cancer over 16 years ago but my comfort is that he isn’t suffering anymore I miss him everyday as I know Randy’s family will miss him. My families prayers are with the Parton family.

Deb and Heidi my heart is broken and crushed over the loss of such a great man and the greatest singer. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I have some great memories visiting you at your house and us going out to eat. Randy is the reason I would go to Dollywood to see his show. He was so happy when Heidi started singing with him. Randy really loved his family and was so proud of you. He will always be in my heart for I always felt like part of the family. R.I.P. my handsome Friend and we will see each other again one day. Deb, Heidi and your family I'm praying for God to help you through this. Now he is an Angel in Heaven singing and being with Tever and the rest of his family. There will never be a man as great as he was. Love and miss you so very much.
