(NBC) - Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon returned to the show on Monday night after missing the previous week following the death of his mother, Gloria.
Gloria Fallon passed away in a New York City hospital on November 4th at the age of 68.
Fallon was full of emotion as he made his first public comments about her death in the show.
Fallon said, "When we were little, my mom would walk us to the store, me and my sister, and we would hold hands.
She would squeeze my hands three times and say, 'I love you'. And I would squeeze back, 'I love you
too!'. And, last week, I was in the hospital, and I saw her and I squeezed her hand and said, 'I love you'
and I just knew we were in trouble."
