Leilani

 

8 of 21
Leilani, a mother who lost her son and stepson in a tragic fire 18 years ago, says one Oprah Show moment helped her come to grips with her grief.

After the tragedy, Leilani says her grief was so intense, she considered taking her own life. "There was a pain," she remembers. "[It was] like a dark hole surrounded me...no one could get to me, and I could get to no one."

The one person who made Leilani feel less alone was Kathy Bray, a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1989. Since that show, Leilani has never forgotten Kathy's story...and neither has Oprah.
