Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Beautiful Tribute to His Late Mom

Jimmy Fallon’s mom Gloria passed away just over a week ago. Last night was his first show back and in the opening of the show he paid tribute to her by sharing a sweet story of them when he was younger and in the grocery store. I can’t even imagine the grief that he is experiencing right now, but he somehow managed to give this sweet tribute to his mom with just a few tears. Me? I was reduced to a puddle. 

Then to top it all off, Taylor Swift showed up with a surprise performance of her new song “New Year’s Day”. The story behind that is a tear-jearker too. Pay attention to the second verse.
