On her telecast on Friday night, Fox News host Megyn Kelly informed viewers that her family had lost someone very, very dear to them.
Antoinette Francis Hallsworth, Megyn’s Nana, died on Thursday at 101 years old. Kelly paid tribute to her Nana by telling her story of growing up poor without electricity, her marriage to a fireman, and her life as a mother and grandmother.
“She went into this world when women couldn’t vote and went out when the country considers it’s first female president,” Kelly said.
“Things were different then…the greatest generation.”
According to Kelly her Nana was integral in raising her and her family and was very proud of Kelly’s work on the “Kelly File.”
“In Nana’s eyes we could do no wrong…her treasures,” Kelly shared.
Kelly choked up when she thanked her viewers who had always been nice to her in regards to her grandmother’s health.
Kelly closed out her segment by reading a poem by Albert Kennedy Rowsell that had sat at her Nana’s bedside for over three decades. Kelly’s grandfather died in the mid-1980s, and the poem provided comfort to her Nana.
Should you go first and I remain,
one thing I’ll have you do:
Walk slowly down that long long path,
for soon I’ll follow you.
I want to know each step you take,
so I may take the same.
For someday down that lonely road
you’ll hear me call your name.
