Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre spoke to his friend Toby Keith a few days before Keith's death from stomach cancer at the age of 62. Favre, who had been friends with Keith for nearly 30 years, recalls their conversation in an interview with TMZ Sports. He expressed worry about Keith's health, but Keith assured him that he was "okay with whatever happens." Keith had quit chemotherapy, stating that it did more damage than the cancer itself. Despite his battle with the disease, Keith continued to perform and played three concerts in Las Vegas in December. Favre praised Keith for his grace, faith, and resilience in facing the cancer.Keith's death prompted tributes from non-country music celebrities such as Sammy Hagar, John Daly, and Stephen Colbert. The country music community also mourned the loss of one of its influential figures and talented songwriters.
