(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Kathryn Limbaugh spoke on Tuesday’s episode of the Rush Limbaugh show, which was guest-hosted by Todd Herman, and said that she and Rush planned his funeral in the months that followed his diagnosis and that he thought it would be “so cool.”
Kathryn recalled that Rush said he hoped he would be invited and that she promised him a “front-row seat.”
An audio recording of Kathryn and Rush Limbaugh has been posted online in which the two discuss his funeral. Kathryn says that she and Rush were talking and she “told him all he has to do is show up, which I’ve also arranged (laughing).”
Rush says that “it is an event, and it’s awesome!” adding that “what she just described to me is incredible. Sorry I’m gonna miss it.”
Kathryn responds by saying he is “gonna have a front-row seat.”
Rush says that he “can’t believe it. It’s so cool!” and went on to say that he couldn’t believe he was talking about his own funeral. Kathryn said on Tuesday’s episode that they had decided to be “open and direct” about the arrangements.
“I told Rush that he is just shy of a president, and presidents get this kind of treatment; so he deserves that,” she said.
Kathryn said that she is doing OK in the aftermath of her husband’s death and burial but said that it’s a “very difficult time,” and added that she feels “we are all going through this process together” and that it “helps us to all be together and grieve in a sense and keep our Rush with us in that way.”
She told Herman that she and Rush referred to his funeral as “the event” and noted that it “came a lot sooner than we would have hoped and liked.”
Kathryn gave the audience a little glimpse into the day Rush was buried at the historic Bellefontaine cemetery in St. Louis.
“It was an absolutely gorgeous day, slightly chilly, but nothing like the snow that Missouri had had a few days prior. The sun was shining brightly and the really crisp air, and this cemetery is very historic. It has a lot of historic figures such as William Clark of Lewis and Clark expedition and others,” she said.
“And just to picture it, it might remind you a bit of Arlington or other historic cemeteries around the world, with winding hills and pathways and big trees that are bare right now but in the upcoming months they will be full and green and very lovely to walk around.”
She explained how Rush’s body was transported from his Palm Beach funeral up to St. Louis in a transport plane and upon landing a funeral procession followed. When they arrived at the cemetery, a horse drawn carriage took Rush the rest of the way.
She went on to say that the entire day was “very peaceful, very beautiful” and that his grave site was surrounded with “powerful American flags waving in the wind and the sun was shining directly on that spot.”
She then discussed his final days saying that he didn’t know that his Feb. 2 broadcast would be his last and explained he “just got a little bit sicker and sicker by the day.”
Kathryn said that Rush knew he was going to Heaven and that they talked about that all the time.
