There are very few people in the industry that didn't feel the loss of Dick Clark last week. However, those who knew him best were hit that much harder, and Dolly Parton is one of the celebs to really feel his passing.

Upon hearing of his death, Dolly release a poignant statement about the icon. She not only reflected on the impact Dick had on the world, but also the influence he had on her life — and her heart!

Dolly reminisces about Dick, saying

No one could have been nicer, classier nor better looking than Dick Clark. I've had a crush on him since I was a teenager. But much more than that, who in this world has done more for the music industry? He will always stay young and special in the minds of all of us. May you rest in peace.

Aww! That's touching!

We bet he was sweet on you too, Dolly. Who wouldn't be, really!

Dick Clark To Be Cremated

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

The television legend who passed away Wednesday will not be having a funeral, and will not be buried.

Instead, Dick Clark opted to be cremated, which allows one’s ‘essence’ to be scattered ANYWHERE… even outer space!

We wonder where Dick requested his remains to be shed? And will there at least be a memorial for the icon who touched so many people's lives? We hope so.

We miss and mourn you, Dick. Your legacy lives on!
