Remembering Joan Rivers

Remembering Joan Rivers 

Dolly Parton, Harry Wayne Casey (of KC and The Sunshine Band) and Frank Marino (Joan Rivers Las Vegas Impersonator)
  "Though her death is no laughing matter, her life was nothing but.  I know she would want us all to keep smiling.  And I know we always will when we think of her.  Rest in peace, Joan. We will always love you." - Dolly Parton

"I am in shock.  My heart goes out to Melissa and Cooper and the whole family in their time of sorrow.  Joan was an endearing person and always took care of everyone she came in contact with, including her fans.  I spent a lot of time with her in Las Vegas and we shared a lot of laughs together.  Whenever I could, I went to shows to hang with her.  Early on, Edgar came to me and said, 'If you need anything, just call' and I took them up on that.  From then on, they became close to me - they became family.

Out of everybody, she never said a harsh word about me.  She said, 'Would you hurry up and have another hit record so we can become like Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor.'  One morning we went out on a golf cart to pick up all the golf balls at a Las Vegas casino resort - I'm sure that made more than a few golfers angry but we couldn't stop laughing!

The world has lost a great comedienne and person, and I've lost a dear friend."  - Harry Wayne Casey (of KC and the Sunshine Band)

"I'm extremely devastated to hear the news of Joan's passing.  This is a lady that not only inspired my career with her amazing talent but was also the one to introduce me to the producers of my first show which kicked off my 30 year career of impersonating her.  Whether she knew it or not, she was not only a good friend but also like a second mother to me.  My heart also goes out to Melissa Rivers, who was not only Joan's daughter but probably her best friend.  In this trying time, my prayers go out to Melissa and her son Cooper for their loss.  I can't imagine what my world is going to be like without having Joan in it every day.  If in any small way I can keep her legacy alive in Las Vegas for years to come, it'll truly be my honor." - Frank Marino
