"Sir, rest in peace. You'll be gone but never forgotten," Wayne said before offering his condolences to Sager's family and recognizing the television personality's fans around the world. "From over here, from afar, you was always admired, you was always loved, and everything you ever worn was always number one in my book."

"Today I actually got a little choked up, and it was an emotion that I haven't felt in a long time," he said. "It showed me how strong respect can be. For someone I've never met."
