After battling a tough illness, Lorna Colbert died last week at 92. She "made a very loving home" and her son felt that she needed to be recognized for doing so. Stephen Colbert took time out of his show on Wednesday to pay tribute to his wonderful mother saying, "if you also like me, it's because of my mom". He became choked up many times and was almost in tears. His mother was a huge part of his life and him to her. So much so, that she said she "wouldn't miss [his show] for the world".
