David Limbaugh, brother of the late great radio host Rush Limbaugh, said he is grateful for the outpouring of love from listeners like family on the Todd Starnes Radio Show.
“It was tough,” Limbaugh, the author of “The Resurrected Jesus: The Church in the New Testament,” told host Todd Starnes.
Limbaugh continued by saying “For the first long period of time, I was down, and I continue to be from time to time.”
“It’s really hard to lose a sibling. You’re in the foxhole together. From the time I was born, I knew him. We were best friends, and he was only a few years older than me,” Limbaugh said.
“There’s a void, there’s a hole in my heart, but I love the fact that his audience considers him family, and me, to some extent, extended family,” he said. “That’s a warm feeling.”
Limbaugh said it went beyond just politics and radio for many listeners.
“It was more than that he was their mouthpiece for years. It was that he was in their homes three hours a day. They considered him family, literally family. You can’t believe how intimate they considered themselves and how they say invariably he’s the best friend I never met. So that’s extremely gratifying to me to witness that, to experience that, to receive those expressions of warmth every day. And it continues. You look at my mentions column on Twitter and just daily, I mean it’s how much they appreciate and miss Rush and wonder what he would think about this and all that,” Limbaugh added. “So it’s pretty cool.”
