During the conversation, the 86-year-old Pat recalled the loss of William, who died after 59 years of marriage.

She said, "I was so worried about being a widow. And then one day I had an epiphany: You will be alright, Pat. And I am.”

Garner chimed in, "You really did. You made that decision."

Pat went on to say, "And I really have been alright. Now, I miss him. And I so wanted to tell him I was going to be on the Today show."

"He loved how much people loved you," Garnier said, adding, "So he would be right there smiling. ... How lucky to grow up with parents like mine."

For those unversed, William died on March 30, 2024, at the age of 85. Garner announced the dismal news on her Instagram account and posted a heartfelt poem for her late father.
