Last week, we reported that the conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh had been laid to rest in a private ceremony in St. Louis, Missouri after he passed away last month following a battle with lung cancer. Now, his widow Kathryn has broken her silence to talk about her husband’s funeral as well as her own future plans.
“It’s a difficult time but I’m OK and we will make it through together,” Kathryn told guest host Todd Herman on her late husband’s show on Tuesday.
“We called the day of his passing as ‘the event’ to make it a little lighter,” she added, according to Fox News. “We planned the memorial service for a year. Rush laughed at the coming event. The sun was shining brightly at the Missouri funeral home, not like the icy snow a week before.”
Kathryn went on to talk about laying her husband to rest, saying the ceremony was beautiful.
“Rush was just shy of a president in my view,” Kathryn said. “There will be pictures of the horse-drawn carriage with us following behind. We had a short ceremony in their chapel to his favorite song. We then went down to the burial site. We prayed around Rush and played some of his favorite music. It was absolutely stunning with a beautiful oak tree over Rush with the sun shining down on him.”
As for her own plans moving forward, Kathryn fully intends to keep her husband’s legacy alive.
“I will continue the Rush Revere books and audio,” she explained. “To keep the movement alive, just think of what Rush would say and do. I have his wedding ring and a cross on a chain around my neck, keeping him with me every day, every moment. Rush didn’t know after which EIB Show he would follow God’s plan to return to Heaven. He went peacefully. Yes, he was greeted by many when he arrived back home.”
Fans will undoubtedly be pleased that Kathryn added to Todd, “I will be back on EIB as often as you want me to be.”
Rush was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in January of 2020, and he fought it valiantly for over a year. Soon after his diagnosis was made public, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor, by then-President Donald Trump.
“Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” Trump said at the time.
