Dolly Parton paid tribute to her friend, Naomi Judd, days after she died on Saturday (4/30), which was just one day before Judd and her daughter, Wynonna, were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Dolly posted in part on Instagram last night (5/2), “I was so shocked to hear about Naomi’s passing. Naomi and I were close. We were very similar. We were the same age and both Capricorns. We loved big hair, makeup, and music. I have always loved Ashley, Wynonna, and Naomi. They’ve always been like sisters to me.”

She added her condolences and congratulations on their Hall of Fame induction and then said, “Just know that I will always love you.”
