Alex Trebek was in pain in his last days of life, riddled with cancer, yet he opened his heart to “Jeopardy!” viewers, asking them to open their hearts and wallets to help COVID victims.
This is Alex’s last week of shows, taped 10 days before his death. He says, “You’ll recall that about a month ago, I asked all of you to take a moment to give thanks for all of the blessings that you enjoy in your lives.” He is, of course, referring to his Thanksgiving message.
You can hear he has trouble speaking … his voice is very raspy.
He goes on … “But today, I’d like you to go one step further. I’d like you to open up your hands and open up your hearts to those who are still suffering because of COVID-19. People who are suffering through no fault of their own.”
Alex ends with this … “This is the season of giving. I know you want to be generous with your family, your friends, your loved ones,” adding, “We’re trying to build a gentler, kinder society and if we all pitch in — just a little bit — we’re gonna get there.”
Alex died on November 8. A great man to the end.
