As the year winds down and new outlets continue to look back at key events in 2015, Kathie Lee Gifford took a moment on Wednesday's episode of the Today show, to remember a heartbreaking one: The death of her husband, Frank Gifford.
The sportscaster, NFL Hall of Famer and New York Giants star died on Aug. 9 at age 84. On Wednesday's Today show, Kathie Lee's co-host Hoda Kotb, 51, called him a "truly special man."
The Today episode featured heartwarming footage of Frank and Kathie Lee , 62, together on the show, as well as segments showing her speaking fondly of him.
"He was so grateful," she said, tearfully. "He knew what hard work was. He never had an entitled moment in his life and we will miss him, so much."
