Re: Don Lemon's Sister Dies In Accidental Drowning

I have been wondering where Don has been.  If CNN made an announcement of this tragedy, I must have missed it.  I have always liked Don and his is usually the last show I watch at night, so I have missed him.

 

My beloved sister died in August 2011.  We were always like twins, only thirteen months apart.  I will never get over losing her and still mourn her every single day.

 

My heart goes out to Don and his family.  I hope to see him back on CNN in the near future, but he is an emotional man, so it may take a while.

I am very sorry to read this.  May he receive the strength he needs to go forward.

 

Bless the soul of his sister.

 

Don Lemon is a measured and rational man, to my mind.

I am so sorry to hear about this tragedy!  I try to never miss Don on CNN.  He is a very strong young man.  I'm sure we'll see him on air again soon.

I read about it in a few papers I read on line.  I turned on his show last night not realizing he'd be back.  The way he opened the show -- it was with genuine feeling, class and deep gratitude.  

 

He talked briefly about his sister and then was so humble in all his thanks and some of the people he thanked surprised me (Sean Hannity, among others), I was a sobbing mess.  If you missed it and you're a fan and can find it on line, it's well worth watching.

@LoriLori  Thank you for posting this.  I really like Don Lemmon and Googled this and found last night's show easily.  It was a very heartfelt opening.  I'm glad I got to see it.  I'm so sorry for him and his family.

@NickNack, great!  I edited my post because as I sometimes do I repeated myself about being a sobbing mess. 

 

You're right, googling it it's everywhere, but for people who trust links here it is in its entirety on youtube:

Re: Don Lemon's Sister Dies In Accidental Drowning

Why is it necessary when expressing condolences to a person on the loss of a loved one, to say whether or not you like or do not like the person to whom you are offering sympathy?  Just wondering...
