Afterworld of Our Fathers and Mothers
Luke Russert's book tour for 'Look For Me There' offers a universal truth facing everyone who has lost a treasured parent.
The most moving thing I’ve seen on television lately was Morning Joe’s interview Friday morning with Luke Russert, the son of legendary NBC newscaster Tim Russert.
Luke has been on an extensive book tour to promote his memoir, Look For Me There: Grieving My Father, Finding Myself. The interview reveals the love a child feels from a parent after the parent dies. As I’ve been taught and learned in the years since I lost my mother and my father, the relationship you had with a parent before their death is the relationship that will follow you for the rest of your life.
Like Luke Russert, I am blessed to enjoy a loving relationship post-death with my folks, Jerry Davidoff and Denise Ellen Taft Davidoff.
Mike Barnicle did an especially good job of eliciting truths from Luke in this interview. Watch it here.
