"It's no surprise to me because I've always known there's no undertaking or challenge you could not overcome. You are not just an artist and entertainer, you are a visionary and you deserve this star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and every other recognition that comes your way."

"Now I'm looking back on it I can say I am thankful for Quincy being who he was for trying to tell us to get our lives right, be more positive and more productive because now that I'm a positive and productive man I can walk around more peaceful, more happy."

He also thanked himself, adding, "I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing all this hard work, I want to thank me for having no days off, I want to thank me for never quitting, I want to thank me for always being a giver and trying to give more than I receive. I want to thank me for trying to do more right than wrong, I want to thank me for just being me at all times."
