Soledad O'Brien has long been a favorite of FTVLive and we want to wish her well as she has lost both her Dad and Mom in a span of 40 days.
O'Brien posted the news to Twitter that he mom had just died.
My mom died today. Joining my dad who passed away 40 days ago. She was a pretty remarkable lady. An immigrant from Cuba, she lived with the Oblate Sisters of Providence in Baltimore during college. Here (on the left) she is in Cuba in the 1930s. pic.twitter.com/oZNzEqa7ig— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) March 18, 2019
She then went on to share some of her memories of her mom:
FTVLive sends our condolences to Soledad and her family.
Like I have said, I have always been a big fan of Soledad and her work and attitude. Now, it’s clear where that all came from.
