Dolly Parton was sad when she learned of the death this weekend of Oscar winning actress Olympia Dukakis. Parton, who starred along side of Olympia in 1989’s Steel Magnolias, shared her thoughts on Twitter.

Dolly posted, “I was so sorry to hear that Olympia Dukakis had passed away. She has been one of my favorite people that I have ever known or worked with. I really got very close to her and felt like we were good friends.”

She added, “Even though I didn’t get to see her much, I thought of her often and knew that she was such a quality human being. She will be missed by her fans, her family, and those of us that were lucky enough to get to know her personally.” – Dolly
