Extremely meaningful. I went through the dementia journey with my mom. It was profound, and I will be forever grateful that we became best gal pals for the last 5 years of her life. It was during that time that I came to truly love her.

I will be sharing this with my adult children, who lost their father in 2012. We have since lost my daughter-in-law to an overdose, just 2 weeks ago. This is such an important podcast episode. Thank you, sir.

Anderson....I could listen to you all day long. I too am going through grief on a daily basis. I lost my son to suicide 8 years ago. it is a loss that I feel everyday. I miss him terribly. I miss my friend and the specialness of his being. I so get what you're going through. Your candidness make you all the more relatable. We belong to a club no one asked to be in. We don't get over it, we get through it. Keep talking about them. it keeps their spirit alive and relative. Thank you Anderson!!! ps....You're an amazing Daddy!!!!@

I lost both of my parents (separately about 6 mos apart) when I was ten, I was separated from my older brothers at my Father's funeral. I wanted to thank you for the podcast and especially the episode with Stephen Colbert. I found many aspects that I could relate to. Thank you for sharing this with everyone else.
