Frank Gifford’s wife Kathie Lee Gifford pays glowing tribute to hall of famer on ‘Today’ show
Frank Giffordâ€™s wife Kathie Lee Gifford has paid glowing tributes to her husband. Frank Gifford passed away just over a week ago leaving behind five children and wife Kathie Lee.
Kathie Lee got back to her ‘Today’ show last evening, merely a week after the death of her legendary husband and paid tribute to him in best words. She praised him so much that it felt as if he was not just her husband, but her only hero that she held in high esteem.
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€.
If that was not enough Kathie Lee went on to add, â€œHis world got smaller as his God got biggerâ€¦We laughed until the very end and I just want you to know that this was a man who died in complete peaceâ€¦I’m grateful that the Lord took him that way because the only thing Frank has ever afraid of his entire life was being a burden to his loved onesâ€¦So I think the Lord for that, for his grace to us as a familyâ€.
