The entertainer was sharing moments about his costar and friend Jean Stapleton during an emotional tribute.

Jean Stapleton is known best as Edith Bunker, fictional 1970s sitcom character on All in the Family.

Over the years Stapleton had other entertainment work, but fans remembered her for the character even long after the show was over.
The 2013 Emmys honored five individuals who passed in 2013. Picking a Jean Stapleton tribute seemed so appropriate as fans from several generations have watched her work on television.
