Philippians 4:13 reads, “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”
Gifford’s co-host Hoda Kotb visited with Kathie Lee shortly after her husband’s sudden’s death. Kotb was in awe of the Kathie Lee’s strength that she found in her faith.
“She said this is not a tragedy,” Kotb said on TODAY Monday. “I was holding her hand, and she said, ‘A 4-year-old girl having cancer is a tragedy.’ She said Frank lived to be almost 85. She said he lived an incredible life, has an incredible family and an incredible legacy. She said his life is a triumph.”
Gifford was well known for his NFL career as well as his time on Monday Night Football, but he was also well known for being Kathie Lee’s husband as she spoke of him often to her viewers.
