Kathryn Limbaugh, the widow of radio legend Rush Limbaugh, announced on Monday that there would be a virtual memorial service held for her husband in the coming week.

Rush Limbaugh died last week at age 70 after a lengthy career as a conservative radio icon.

"We are in the initial stages of planning a celebration of life that will be able to be viewed by all of the audience and friends and extended family at some point in the near future. We don't have an exact date just yet, we're working on some of the logistics," said Kathryn Limbaugh, adding that the ceremony would be virtual because of the pandemic.

During the Monday edition of "The Rush Limbaugh Show," Kathryn Limbaugh discussed her relationship with her husband and took calls from listeners of the program, who described their connections with him through his show.

"We had somebody who could help us feel the words he was saying, and then we could put that to our everyday life," one caller said. "He made us feel like he was us."
