    Everytime I hear Patton talking about his grief, I always tear up. This man
    is a legend, he’s dealing with so much but he still manages to make
    everyone laugh

    Beautiful man, and beautiful approach to dealing with his grief. Thanks for
    sharing this publicly, Patton; I guarantee you’re helping more people than
    you probably realize with your insight and openness!

    This is like the interview with Joe Biden from the first week of the show.
    This is why Stephen is great, why his interviews can become something
    really open and natural.

    I lost my father 7 months ago. One of the things that has kept my chin up
    is that everyone goes through this type of grief at least once in their
    life. It’s a unifying factor of humanity. And now I feel like I’ve earned
    my place at the table of this life experience. I would give anything to
    have him back in my life. But as Patton said, I must continue to endure.
