Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson has shared an emotional video of himself baptizing a close friend who later died of cancer. According to the video, Rick Carone, an employee of Robertson’s Buck Commander franchise asked the reality star to baptize him after finding out he was battling terminal cancer.

“Today marks the end of a long battle for our good friend Rick Carone,” Robertson posted on the Buck Commander Facebook page.

“Cancer may have taken Rick’s earthly body but now he is in heaven walking with Jesus! Rick inspired so many people and will forever be remembered as a fighter. See ya’ soon brother! We love you!”

“No matter what, we’re going to be in eternity together,” Robertson declares, before asking Carone who’s going to be the Lord of his life.

Carone responds, “Jesus Christ.”
