Frank Gifford funeral like a missed bus: Kathie Lee Gifford says he disliked funeral
Kris Jenner and Hoda Kotb have paid great tributes to Frank Gifford and his wife Kathie Lee Gifford. The two decided to pay tribute to Kathie Lee and her husband on the birthday of the couple.
There is no denying the fact that husband and wifeâ€™s date of birth matching is a sort of rarity. Like many rarities, it was also found between the two. Both Kathie and Frank were born on the same date, but almost twenty-five years apart. Frank Gifford would have turned 85.
While writing about the duo, Kathieâ€™s co-host on Today said, â€œ2 amazing people were born today xo all my loveâ€. Kotb also put a picture of the couple along with the comment.
On the other hand Kotb was not the only one to shower praise on the two. Kathie Lee’s close friend Kris Jenner also praised her. â€œHappy Birthday to my beautiful friend Kathie Leeâ€¦I wish you peace and understanding. I know it’s Frank’s birthday today too. I wish I was there with you today. Big hug my angel.â€ She said.
Earlier in a tearful farewell to her husband Kathie Lee said, She talked in detail about her husband saying â€œHe was born in 1930 into a poverty-stricken home where his father was an oil workerâ€¦He knew what it was like to be hungry. He knew what it was like to have no clothes on your backâ€¦But it made him so grateful. Honestly, he is the most grateful human being I have ever known and that colored everything he did.” She also noted that his faith played a key role in his perspective on the worldâ€¦.They had nothing, but they had their faithâ€¦Every time they moved to a new town, they’d go to church every week as a family, and, as a young child, Frank asked Jesus into his heart and that stayed with Frank his entire lifeâ€.
In the meantime there are reports that a public celebration of Frank Giffordâ€™s is being planned by his widow Kathie Lee Gifford and the coupleâ€™s family. Because â€œFrank hated funerals,â€ the family held a private party to celebrate his life, she said. â€œFrank hated funerals. Frank hated boxes. He hated to be in an elevator,â€ she said. â€œWe played Frank Sinatra all day long. We had a party â€¦ the only criteria was that it had to be somebody he adored.â€
