Dolly Parton Shares Touching Tribute to Leslie Jordan on “Call Me Kat”

Dolly Parton paid tribute to Leslie Jordan on Thursday night’s episode of “Call Me Kat”.

Jordan appeared on the CBS sitcom prior to his death on Oct. 24 in a car accident.

Parton appeared toward the end of the show’s season premiere saying, “I know usually at a memorial, people talk about somebody. Well, I’m going to talk to you” she began. “Because there is that place on the other side, and I’m certainly going to see you there, little brother. You left a lot of people here with a lot of precious, precious memories. Everybody loved you, but I doubt many of them loved you more than I did.”

She continued, “I just want you to know that we all love you, we all miss you, and I bet you’re having a big laugh over all of us being sad and sorrowful. And I know that would be the last thing you would want us to be. You made us happy while you were here, and we’re happy that you’re at peace. I just want you to know that I will always love you. Goodbye, my sweet Leslie.”

The show aired a montage of Jordan’s two-and-a-half seasons on Call Me Kat, accompanied by “Where the Soul Never Dies.”
