So sorry for your loss, out condolences to your family, remember the good times you and your family had with your mother

In 2008 I attended an audience screening of “A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All”. I was seated in the front row next to an empty chair. When Stephen saw the empty chair he said to me “may I sit there?” My first thought was “his mom done good”. THIS was the REAL Stephen – respectful of and considerate to all.
Stephen's used his celebrity to give more of his time and money than we will ever know. Who else would have thought to use a broken wrist as a way to help others? ...

Our condolences to Stephen and all of Mrs. Colbert's children and family. What a lovely lady she must have been.

May the love and care your Mother shared with you throughout your lives carry you through the hurt and loss of her death.
Thank you Stephen for sharing the memories of your Mother, what a wonderful Woman. She now lives on in the minds and hearts of countless people. A beautiful memory of a terrific Mom. Blessings & Hugs

We just saw the Colbert Report episode in which Stephen gives a very moving tribute to his mother. What a wonderful mother he has had! We offer our condolances to Stephen and the rest of the family.

Kind regards,

So sorry to hear of your loss. I didn't know your mom, but coming from a large family myself, I know how much each and everyone of you will have wonderful stories to tell, and it's the telling of the stories that somehow make you smile and bring you as a family closer together. May she rest in peace. Maureen Engler

I just saw the Colbert Report of June 19th and its sad news. My condolences to the whole family from accross the ocean.
