Yesterday, it was reported that Dolly Parton’s brother had passed away at the age of 61.
He unexpectedly passed away last week after an illness, though rumors have surfaced that indicated that he may have been sick for several months before his death.
On the day Floyd reportedly died, Dolly’s sister took to social media to speak of Jesus and her brother.
During his lifetime, Floyd Parton was a successful songwriter, who penned songs such as “Nickels and Dimes,” and “Rockin’ Years.”
Just moments ago, the country star issued a statement on her Twitter account.
The tweet was posted by her team.
In the post, Dolly thanked her fans for all of their love and support during this difficult time. The post also revealed that the family sang “Rockin’ Years” during the funeral service.
Please continue to keep the Parton family in your thoughts and prayers.
