Frank Gifford’s funeral and burial details: Know what Cassidy Gifford said in her dad tributeÂ
It is almost a week when Americaâ€™s best known footballer and sportscaster Frank Gifford left for his final journey. His wife, five children, relatives and fans are still mourning his death.
The New York Giantâ€™s former player and husband of Kathie Lee Gifford passed away this past Sunday at his family home in Greenwich, Connecticut. Now the preparations for his funeral are underway, though the details remain hazy at best.
But there are reports that the funeral is going to be a completely private affair. A report in RadarOnline quoted a family source as saying, â€œThe Gifford family has decided to have a very private funeralâ€.
The family is going to bury him in a family plot in their neighborhood that is owned by them. Though it seems an emotional decision and may not seem that good an idea a few years down the line. The same RadarOnline source told the entertainment blog 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€.
In the meantime his youngest daughter and rising actress Cassidy Gifford dad tribute went on to become huge bigger hit on social media across the world. The 22-year old actress took to Instagram to show how her father was close to her through pics and texts. She put a picture of her sitting on her fatherâ€™s shoulder. It must be kept in mind that when she was born he was already in his sixties. Her words are reverberating in many minds. 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 received.â€
She called her father her closest friend and added that he was her best friend. But apparently this was not enough. â€œYesterday, I lost my best friendâ€¦His kindness was infectious, and his grace, beyond compare.. And despite the worldly passing of an incredible man, I undoubtedly know heaven gained one stud of an angel.â€ Frank Giffordâ€™s daughter concluded her tribute by citing a bible passage and referencing Frankâ€™s Hall of Fame career with the New York Giants, whom the sportscaster played for from 1952 through 1965. â€œPhilippians 4:13 has never rung so true. You were an unparalleled Giant in all sense of the word, Dad.. So keep doinâ€™ you up there, because no one does it better, and no one ever will,â€ she added.
