The hour included surprises guests including Dean Cain and Ryan Eggold, as well as Barry Manilow, who performed “Cant’ Smile Without You.” Regis Philbin also made a video appearance to pay tribute to his former TV co-host. There was also a surprise segment featuring her son Cody, 28, and daughter Cassidy, 25.

“I have 30 seconds to say what has taken me a lifetime to say,” she said while crying during the final moments of the show.

“Jeremiah 29 says, ‘I know the plans I have you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a future and a hope.’ That’s not just true for me you guys. That’s true for everybody watching. Trust him. Let him love like he wants to love you, like I am loved by all of you. Thank you.”
