Jimmy Fallon Makes Emotional Return To 'Tonight Show' After Mom's Death

Jimmy Fallon returned to 'The Tonight Show' on Monday night, a week after the death of his mother.

"It's good to be back, guys," he began. "As some of you know my mother, Gloria, passed away recently. I cancelled 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."

"When we were little, my mom would walk us to this store, me and my sister, and she would squeeze my hand three times and say, 'I love you,' and I would squeeze back, 'I love you, too.'"

Fallon then paused to gather himself: "And last week I was in the hospital and I grabbed her and squeezed I love you. I just knew we were in trouble, you know?"

"I feel so grateful to be able to do this every single night and I'm very appreciative of all the support from all of you that my family received over the past week."

"We're going to continue to work really hard to bring some light and some laughter into the world. Thank you for watching, thank you for helping me and my family recover from this loss. Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh. I love you."
