“I’m doing OK. I’m healing, still in shock, definitely rough loss,” Daly said upon returning to the Today show following his mother’s death. “Nobody likes that will phone to ring inside middle of the night to get that will call.”
“I’ve learned the item’s a process,” he added of how he was coping. “I have great faith, great family, incredible friends.”
