Kenny Rogers Death
Sandy Rogers said she does not want anyone to forget her brother, Kenny Rogers. She told Fox News she agreed to speak on the documentary as a tribute to her brother, and as a way of giving back for everything he did for her family.
She described her brother as a humble person, who did not believe he was a good singer. He simply liked to entertain people, he would say.
She told Fox she is still mourning the death, and sometimes has trouble understanding that he is gone. Still, she said, she knows she will see him in heaven.
“I don’t want anybody to forget him,” she told Fox News. “I know fans just can’t get enough of him, and that is good. He was good to everybody. He was a jokester, but he helped everybody. That’s how we were raised to be and he never forgot that. He did an amazing job. He never saw himself as this icon. He would always say, ‘I’m not a great singer, but I like to entertain people.’ And he was a very good entertainer. I just can’t say enough about him. He’s my brother. I love him. We all loved him. Sometimes I don’t deal with this very well. I still can’t believe he’s gone, but I know I’ll see him again. We’ll see him one day in heaven.”
