Cassidy Gifford dad tribute, what is important: Frank Gifford funeral arrangements underway
It seems merely yesterday when Frank Gifford was at the 19th Annual Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame Awards. Merely five years have passed since then, but the legend has left us alone, mourning his death and cherishing the memories that many among us shared with him.
Frank Gifford was an iconic personality who will remain talk of the town for a long time to come. He was a multifaceted personality and charmed almost everyone who happened to meet him.
When it comes to charm, his charm was particularly at its lethal best when it comes to opposite sex. He had many scandals though and there were times when it looked as if his family life will fall apart, but Kathie Lee Gifford always managed to save the marriage by siding with him.
Frank Gifford was a New York Giants star football player who successfully moved into a sports broadcasting career after he retired from football. The team seems to have accepted him as their most successful player who has ever joined them. There are reports that the team is going to honor him with a special patch on their uniform, although the patch may not be ready for the pre-season game on Friday. Details about Giffordâ€™s funeral have not yet been released.
His family released a very inspiring statement following his death. It talked of his achievement and him being a great father, husband and teammate. â€œIt is with the deepest sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, father and friend, Frank Gifford. Frank died suddenly this beautiful Sunday morning of natural causes at his Connecticut home. We rejoice in the extraordinary life he was privileged to live, and we feel grateful and blessed to have been loved by such an amazing human being. We ask that our privacy be respected at this difficult time and we thank you for your prayersâ€, the statement said.
But more than his wifeâ€™s statement, what everyone seems to be talking at the moment is glowing tribute by his daughter, Cassidy Giffordâ€™. â€œVery few people are blessed enough to call their father a legend, and an even smaller number are able to share that notion with the rest of the worldâ€¦Today of all days I can genuinely say I am humbled by the outpour of love and support my family has receivedâ€ said Cassidy.
She called him her friend and added, â€œYesterday, I lost my best friendâ€¦His kindness was infectious, and his grace, beyond compareâ€¦ And despite the worldly passing of an incredible man, I undoubtedly know heaven gained one stud of an angelâ€ she went on to add. She ended her tribute with the following words, â€œPhilippians 4:13 has never rung so true. You were an unparalleled Giant in all sense of the word, Dad.. So keep doin’ you up there, because no one does it better, and no one ever willâ€
In the meantime as far as funeral is concerned, it is going to be a private affair. Though the final dates were still to be released, the Radar Online report quoted the same source as further saying, â€œFrank is going to be buried in a family plot that is near their home in Connecticut so that the family can visit him whenever theyâ€™d likeâ€¦Kathie Lee is actually in relatively good spirits right now and everyone is really surprised at how well she is taking thisâ€.
