“You left a lot of people here with a lot of precious, precious memories. Everyone loved you, but I doubt many loved you more than I did. I want their you know we love you all.”
Dolly Parton said: “We all miss you, and I bet you have a good laugh that makes us all sad and sad, and I know that’s the last thing you want us to have.”
“You made us happy while you were here and we are happy that you are at peace,” he said. “I just want you to know that I will always love you. Goodbye, sweet Leslie. See you there.”
To finish, he sang part of “I Will Always Love You”.
After her death, Megan Mullally, who played Karen Walker on Will & Grace, wrote a long tribute to Jordan, saying she is heartbroken and “can’t believe” the actress has died.
“Leslie Jordan was undoubtedly one of the greats. People use that phrase a lot, and I’m not sure it’s always applicable,” Mullally wrote. “There are not many people who are really great at anything. But Leslie was impeccably funny, a comedy virtuoso. His timing, his delivery, everything seemed effortless. It doesn’t get much better than that. And a kind, funny, lovable person “.
Other actors who have paid tribute to Jordan since the news broke of his death include Lynda Carter, George Takei, Mayim Bialik and screenwriter Jeremy O Harris.
