    I just read this at Pulse...very sad. He is at peace now, and no longer has to fight that terrible disease. My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.
    I wonder if the Opry acknowledged this during their show last night?

    I saw this yesterday, so sad. . Cancer is such a terrible disease, at least he won't have to fight it anymore.

    I remember, the girl on gac asked Carrie once if she had ever met him. She said no, but she really hoped to some time.
