"She was the one I was always trying to make laugh and she was such a fan of the show, and everything I did", Fallon shared.

"Our hearts go out to Jimmy and everyone else whose lives were so touched by Gloria Fallon's love, kindness and support", the network added last week. The show ran reruns all last week as he mourned, and celebrities posted numerous condolences on social media. The song's lyrics proved appropriate to Fallon's emotional return, particularly this line: "You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi / I can tell that it's gonna be a long road / I'll be there if you're the toast of the town, babe / Or if you strike out and you're crawling home".

DiCenzo also said production edited out a minute of the show to leave room for Fallon high-fiving members of the audience, because that was his mother's favorite part. He noted then, "My mom was like a total square; she wasn't allowed to leave her stoop in Brooklyn".

"As some of you know, my mother, Gloria, passed away recently", he said at the top of his show. "I didn't get the calling!' Ha!"

Fallon ended his opening segment with a message for his late mother. "When we were little my mom would walk us (Jimmy and his sister) to the store and she would squeeze my hand three times and say 'I love you, ' and I would squeeze back 'I love you too, '" he said as he unsuccessfully tried to control his emotions.

The chat show host said he was greatly appreciative of the support he and his family received during such a hard time. "Thank you for helping me and my family recover from this loss".
