As the world continues to mourn the loss of Mike Nichols, 'Good Morning America' anchor Robin Roberts is sharing one of the best memories she had with the Oscar-winning director, who died last week of a heart attack at the age of 83.
"One of the best Thanksgiving memories I have is in their home," Roberts says of Nichols and his wife, Diane Sawyer, with whom Roberts worked for years on 'Good Morning America.'
"Going to Mike and Diane's [home] for Thanksgiving was something that was totally different," Roberts said with a laugh.
"That was the first time my mom met Mike," she continued, "and she was just chatting away. Then, she goes back home to Mississippi and she tells her friends, 'Oh, I met Diane's husband, Mike!'" And they were like, 'You know that was Mike Nichols, right?!' She goes, "Oh really! No kidding!" She had no idea!"

"She just loved him for being who he is," Roberts continued. "He was just so full of life. It's a wonderful memory."
