Kathie Lee Gifford is doing everything she can to honor her late husband, Frank Gifford's, legacy.
To do that, the Today show co-host had to think about all of the things Frank did and didn't enjoy. Funerals ranked at the top of the list of things the former NFL star hated, so she nixed that idea from the get-go. Frank was not going to get a funeral.
"We had a party," Kathie Lee explained Tuesday morning. "Frank hated funerals. He hated boxes. He hated to be put in boxes. He hated to get in an elevator, so we played Frank Sinatra all day long and we partied. The only criterion was if you were there you had to be somebody that he adored, so it kept it nice and small."
But with the "outpouring" of support from friends, fans and the Twittersphere, Kathie Lee realized everyone should have the opportunity to pay their respects as she and her small gathering did. It will start with the New York Giants, who Kathie Lee revealed have a very special tribute planned for the fall football season.
