This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
We are so incredibly touched!
As we previously reported, famed athlete Frank Gifford passed away on August 9 due to natural causes.
"Frank was a beautiful man with a beautiful, generous heart."
In fact, the TODAY host believes the football legend lived every moment to the fullest.
"He lived fully and loved deeply, and he leaves an amazing legacy of lives touched and changed."
While his death has been tough, the 62-year-old finds strength from her friends and family, including their two children Cody, 25, and Cassidy, 22 — along with three others from a previous relationship.
"We will miss him for the rest of our lives… But we gain strength, joy, comfort and hope that we will see him again in the Kingdom of Heaven."
We are so glad Kathie is speaking up about Frank's legacy and we hope the family is doing well during this difficult time.
