Last week, Stephen Colbert's mother, Lorna, passed away at the age of 92. Colbert returned to The Colbert Report on Wednesday evening and paid tribute to Lorna with a lovely opening segment explaining who she was as a person and as a mother. He talks about her childhood, the way she ran their household growing up, the love and loss in her life, and, ultimately, the final memories that she was able to cling to at the end.

"And I know that it may sound greedy to want more days with someone who lived so long, but the fact that my mother was 92 does not diminish, it only magnifies, the enormity of the room whose door has now quietly shut."

Then, he starts the program because that's exactly what his mother would have wanted.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is your morning cry.
