Carol Burnett is paying respects to her friend and long-time collaborator Steve Lawrence, the singer and Blues Brothers actor who died Thursday, March 7. He was 88.

“Steve was one of my favorite guests on my variety show, appearing 39 times. He was also my very close friend … so close that I considered him ‘family.’ He will always be in my heart,” Burnett wrote on Instagram alongside a black-and-white photograph of them performing together on The Carol Burnett Show.
