Jimmy Fallon pays tribute to his late mother on ‘Tonight Show’

Jimmy Fallon returned to “The Tonight Show” Monday night, and made an emotional tribute to his late mother. “As some of you know my mother, Gloria, passed away recently. I canceled our shows last week to be with my family and make arrangements. “She was the best audience, she was the one I was always trying to make laugh, and she was such a fan of the show and everything I did.” The host went on to thank viewers and colleagues for all of their support over the last few days. Fallon’s mother died at the age of 68 on Nov. 4 from an undisclosed illness.
