It also featured an emotional interview by The View's Whoopi Goldberg, who exclusively sat down to talk with Chadwick's widow, Simone Ledward Boseman.

"That's such a comfort. To have that, it makes you take chances, and I think the audience picks up on that — the way that we are so different in many ways but so common in others."
