Beloved talk show host Ellen DeGeneres gave a beautiful tribute to her father this week. Elliot DeGeneres was 92 years old when he passed. She attributed her sense of humor to her father, and spoke about the one vacation the family took to Warner Bros. Studios — the same studio where she now films her show.
So deeply sorry Ellen. He must have been unbelievably proud of all the light and love and laughter you give to the world.— Christine Lahti (@ChristineALahti) January 12, 2018
We love you so much, Ellen. Your father was without a doubt a great man, heck he gave us YOU! You are so cute in that photo in the rocking chair. Your doll was bigger than you. Thank you for all you have given us. I wish I could give back a 100th of that gift to you! TY♥️🦋🌈— Urania (@Cskya1) January 12, 2018
It was a beautiful sunny day in Chippewa Falls, WI, and this rainbow appeared over the funeral home at my grandpa’s funeral. Just like the rainbow over your studio, I think we need to pay attention to the signs. Our family sends love and blessings to your family❤️ pic.twitter.com/UKInBmf7JK— αииιє (@FreidAnnie) January 12, 2018
@TheEllenShow I just recently lost my father as well. A couple days before he died I saw a rainbow outside the hospital at a point when I felt lost and alone. I truly believe it was him letting us know he'd be ok. Sorry for your loss it's not easy losing a parent.— Shandell (@ShandellShelton) January 13, 2018
I was in hospital when my g-father died, returned home that day. Was pouring with rain the whole day but on ‘talking’ to him the sun shone bright then died down. On saying ‘if that’s you, do it again’ ... it did. They’re always there 💜— Pia Opitz (@peeahh) January 13, 2018
I'm so sorry for your loss, Ellen. Love and hugs to you and your family. My dad gave me a rainbow after he passed away too. The cloud above it looks like glorious angel wings. It was an unforgettable, truly beautiful moment for me. Love and miss him with all my heart. 💛🌈❤ pic.twitter.com/AAMWKEqalx— Janelle Tweed (@janelletweed) January 13, 2018
