FYI:(The Linkster is very familiar with grief and loss. My oldest son was only four years old when he was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He slowly withered away and died at fourteen..)
When Stephen Colbert was ten years old, he lost his father and two of his brothers in a plane crash. He spoke about it recently with Anderson Cooper.
Cooper said “You told an interviewer that you have learned to, in your words, ‘Love the thing that I most wish had not happened.'”
