Jimmy Fallon Sends A Heartfelt Goodbye to David Letterman! This Is Perfectly Sweet!

| Filed under: TV NewsDavid LettermanJimmy FallonLate Night TV

Your Reaction?

Awww! We're tearing up already!

As many of you know, this week marks the end of an era as late night host David Letterman is finally retiring. Jimmy Fallon, being not just a late night talk show host, but having his roots firmly cemented in comedy, has a very deep respect for Dave.

[ Video: Watch Tom Hanks Teach David Letterman How To Take A Selfie! ]

Jimmy, generally the goofy funnyman who can barely keep a straight face during a sketch or joke, took a moment to get a little more serious Monday night to say a heartfelt goodbye.

Jimmy reflected back on watching Letterman when he was growing up and how his grade school teacher predicted he'd one day take Letterman's place. Jimmy then recalled a time when he admired Letterman the most for the incredible man he is by remembering Letterman's words right after the 9/11 attack. He quoted Dave's words by saying:

"He said, 'There is only one requirement for any of us and that is to be courageous, because courage, as you know, defines all other human behavior.' We needed that. David Letterman is courageous. Have a nice retirement, Dave."

What an absolutely incredible host, entertainer, and man! We'll miss you Dave and wish you the best of luck!

The Oscar winner decided to commemorate the fact that it was the TV host's third to last show — by snapping a pic using the HIGHlarious selfie stick!!

He explained:

"Rita [Wilson] announced that we will never ever have a selfie stick in the house."

Apparently, that is no longer the case! LOLz!

He went on to defend that the picture taking tool is extremely popular in Florence, Italy — which was a good enough excuse to convince his wife to let him have one! AH-Mazing!

He quipped:

"That's birthplace of the Renaissance."

Very true!! The Cast Away actor then walked the TV legend through the #selfie process.

He instructed:

"Above the chin, above the chin!"

FIERCE! Perhaps Kim K. and Tom should open a selfie taking school?! We'd take that course.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out Tom's HIGHlarious interview (below)!
