As Charlie Daniels’ family continues to grieve, Randy Travis and his wife Mary honored the late entertainer with an incredible gift: three wooden crosses adorned with gorgeous flowers.
Daniels team shared a photo of Travis’ generous gift on Twitter. “We really appreciate it,” representatives for the country star wrote.
The kind gesture is a nod to Travis’ 2002 hit, “Three Wooden Crosses.”

Charlie Daniels passed away on Monday, July 6 at Summit Medical Center in Hermitage, Tennessee. The 83-year-old suffered a hemorrhagic stroke, which resulted in his death.
After his passing, Travis shared a touching tribute to his dear friend on social media, writing, “Charlie Daniels was one of the finest gentlemen I have ever known. He, and Hazel, have been two of my and Mary’s dearest friends over the past years. We laughed, cried and prayed together. Not only was he a gift to us, but to the entire world. A few years ago, Charlie had a colt born on my birthday and named him after me. The memories go on and on, so I’ll leave it at this — Charlie, thank you for everything you’ve done for me, your endless support of us, your unconditional love, and the sweet memories. It is my greatest honor to be your Country Music Hall of Fame classmate–you will live on forever as my hero… my friend. I love you.”
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member was laid to rest over the weekend. Travis Tritt, Vince Gill, Gretchen Wilson and Trace Adkins performed at his patritoic-themed funeral, which took place in Murfreesboro, Tenn. on Friday (July 10).
