He interviewed Katie Coelho, the widow of Jonathan Coelho, who lost his life from complications brought about by the COVID-19.

The grieving woman shared with Cooper, "It comes in waves, it's very surreal. I keep thinking in my head there's gonna be a time where I've been without my husband longer than I've been with him. It hurts a lot."

After he passed away, Jonathan's wife found a note he left her the morning he died after his phone was returned to her. Cooper read out some of his words on-air saying, "I love you guys with all my heart, and you've given me the best life I could have ever asked for."

As he read, the 52-year-old TV personality struggled to hold back tears but eventually had to pause as he was choking up. "Sorry," he stated, but Coelho assured him it was "OK" as she joked about how good her husband was with words.
