It has been three weeks since "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek passed away, but the legendary television personality is still inspiring many even in death.

Trebek explained that the pandemic has seen several kindhearted people offering to help their neighbors and described it as a good thing.

He concluded by encouraging viewers to "keep the faith" and added that the world would get through the pandemic. Trebek's inspiring message was accompanied by a caption that read:

As expected, Trebek's fans went wild in the comments section, with many describing him as a television icon and many others noting that they miss him.

Trebek passed away on November 8 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Despite his health struggles, he was still hosting new episodes of the show until a few days before his death.

Between December 21 and December 28, a collection of some of Trebek's best episodes is expected to air across the United States.

With his dedication to work, it comes as no surprise that Trebek had filmed enough episodes of the show to last until the first week in January 2021. One of these was the thanksgiving clip shared recently.

Before his death, Trebek served as the host for "Jeopardy" since 1984 and was expected to continue hosting the trivia show until 2022. For his exceptional work, Trebek was nominated for 34 Daytime Emmy Awards, out of which he won seven.

In June 2011, Trebek received the Daytime Emmy Awards Lifetime Achievement Awards for his decades-long career hosting "Jeopardy." The following year, he also received the Peabody Award for encouraging and celebrating knowledge.

Though a permanent replacement for Trebek has not yet been announced, "Jeopardy" champion Ken Jennings will be the first in a series of interim hosts for the show. Jennings currently holds the all-time record for highest winnings in regular season play of the show with his 74 game winning streak.

Between December 21 and December 28, a collection of some of Trebek's best episodes is expected to air across the United States. Once again, viewers will get to see their favorite television host lighting up their screens as he did for over three decades.
