Stephen Colbert’s mother died last week, so when he returned to do his program, he began it with this tribute to her. No politics. No tongue-in-cheek remarks. Just genuine reflection on a mom who loved well and was well-loved. It was convicting, as I would love this to be said of me. Whether or not you agree with his politics, his tribute to and regard for his mother speaks volumes for his character–and hers.
Yeah, moving tribute!

Very moving tribute by Stephen!
Beautiful words, and obviously heartfelt.
