    Praying and wishing you a very speedy recovery, glad it was not any worse. My husband and I were married in Pigeon Ford, but went to be with Lord 6/12 very unexpected. We always hoped we would get to see u in person. We got to meet the other Merle Haggard, I even used his song Cabin On The Hill in His service. I really am glad u were not hurt bad. We got married in Pigeon Forge. Still hope I see you in person one day.

    Dolly, I live in Knoxville and love the park, and almost took jobs at Dollywood. Since then we have incurred health problems and do not get to the park very often like we use to. You now how much we all adore you. My Husband and I wish you the very best and thank you for all you have done for the community. Get well soon.
