VIDEO Stephen Colbert delivers emotional tribute to mom Lorna

On last night’s Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert opened his show with a moving tribute to his mom Lorna Colbert, who passed away a week prior at the age of 92. During the emotional eulogy, Colbert often became overwhelmed as he told his viewers a little bit about the woman who shaped so much of who he is. While he spoke, a montage of images of Lorna Colbert were shown. I recently lost my mother and I found myself crying right along with Stephen as his recollections of his mom, and his outward grief over his family’s loss, closely resembled my own. See the video and if you can’t catch it where you’re at, I’ve transcribed it as well.
