10:01 am
families. sad time for those who either never knew their father, and more and more that seems to be the case in this world or have no relationship with your father. for people such as hoda and myself who feel like we've been eternally blessed to have the fathers we had. my dad eppy with cass when she was little. it will be ten years this november since daddy went to be with the lord. what about you? where is your picture? i love that. >> yes. that's my dad back in the day. i'm the one with the anchor object her shirt. let's not discuss that outfit or her hair. that's an old picture, my sister obviously in the middle. i thought my dad was larger than life. i used to have dreams that he was the president. when i woke up, when you believe something, i was like of course he is, but in the dream they said since your dad is not born in this country i can only be
10:02 am
the vice president. okay. but it was so real in my head, you know? >> here's the difference. hoda and i adored our fathers, but my daddy had a very long and very painful illness, about eight years from beginning to end. you lost your dad suddenly. >> yeah. i was in college. he had a heart attack. it was like healthy. i never got to say good-bye. those kind of things are hard. what's interesting about women who lost their dads, no matter what age, a lot of women like that i find are kind of ambitious. i wonder what that's about. sometimes it's sort of the itch you can't scratch. you keep pushing yourself because you want someone to say you did good. once someone says that you feel like you can rest. until that, and when you know that's not coming, even though you feel that anyway. >> we lost them but feel -- i'm so grateful i had a man like that in my life as my dad for the years i had him.
10:03 am
i can't even begin to talk about how priceless a gift it was to have a dad like that. i know you feel the same way. there is a tree outside our house that i wrote a song about when i found out daddy was going to hospice. there is this tree. it was the coldest, windiest, worse day in november. it was november 13th. i remember going out. i prayed, god, you just have to tell me that it's going to be okay, you know. there was one leaf hanging off this tree. just one. it was such a picture of my dad's life. i wrote this song that i put in a little musical called "under the bridge" called "he is with you." he comes before and gone on with you. >> wish your father a happy father's day this weekend. >> you never know when the last chance to hug him will be. >> there are good tv dads.
