Kelsey Grammer On Keeping His Sister's Legacy Alive

Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence have enjoyed the success of their new FX sitcom, “Partners.” But, with all the laughs Kelsey has given us, he also suffered insurmountable pain after his sister was brutally murdered almost 40 years ago. Watch as Kelsey opens up about forgiving his sister’s killer and keeping her legacy alive.

How do you -- You carry this love you have for your sister. I carry a deep fondness for her. As well as a commitment, I couldn't stop them from killing her but I can stop them from being free. I don't know if you know how to handle some things. My dad had been shot when I was 14 and my grand dad was gone when I was 12. Do you think this loss of your family in early time? S made did you. I probably recreated my family of origin in many ways.
