Last time I saw Chester, he showed me a video of his 5 year-old daughter...

A video he was very proud of!

It's a moment that occurred before our scheduled interview and I think it offers a very real look at the man we all knew as an entertainer from a whole new perspective; it allows us to see him as a dad.

He was quite proud that his little girl knew how to swear "correctly," and told me he was planning to turn her latest outburst into a ringtone:

 

It made me so sad to hear this exchange again, and listening through pieces of our interview that were shared on the air throughout the day. I think it's important for fans to realize that while it's a crappy day for us, it's a devastating one for his family.

Rest easy, Chester.
