Hal Holbrook’s statement on the death of his wife, Dixie Carter: “This has been a terrible blow to our family. We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy. Thank you.”
Annie Pott's statement: "Dixie Carter was a Goddess. Beautiful and brainy, smart and funny, prim and sexy, wickedly talented and divinely sweet. The kind of wife and mother that every mother hopes their daughter will become and the kind of friend that is absolutely irreplaceable. She loved fiercely and was adored in return. To have known her a little was a delight to all. To have known her well, a treasure beyond reckoning.
And now, a loss beyond measure." – Annie Potts
Jean Smart’s statement: “Dixie was such an amazing person. She was gorgeous, hilarious, incredibly talented and so devoted to her family. There was no one else like her and I was completely crazy about her. She exuded joy. Richard and I will really miss her and our hearts go out to her beautiful family.”
-Jean Smart, April 12, 2010
