Even though the Christmas season might be difficult for the Today show co-host, she's choosing to keep her head held high, telling E! News' Marc Malkin on the set of her and Hoda Kotb's A Toast to 2015 special that she's happy her husband is up in Heaven.
"Every day I start my day with my lord Jesus Christ. It's the way I live every day and I end it. My husband is with him, and I know that with all my heart," she says. "People don't understand that you can rejoice and grieve at the same time. I rejoice that my husband is there in a beautiful place and I miss him."
