It’s been four years since the death of Kathie Lee Gifford’s beloved husband and father of her two kids, Frank Gifford.

Dealing with the death of a loved one

Kathie Lee Gifford admitted it was hard to deal with her husband’s death. On an episode of the TODAY show, the former co-anchor opened up about her life as a widow and described her journey towards acceptance.

She said:

You have a moment where you just accept that you are a widow. It looks weird to you for the longest time. You don’t define yourself that way.

Tribute to Frank

Four years after Frank’s death, his wife, Kathie Lee Gifford shared a touching and loving tribute on Instagram.

To honor her late husband’s memory, the former Today co-host shared a picture of Frank with the caption:

Four years ago today God took this beautiful, wonderful husband and father to his real home -BET AV-THE FATHER’S HOUSE. We miss him every day but we will hold him again!

Frank Gifford sadly passed away at the age of 87 in 2015. The family revealed that his death may have been connected to his condition. Despite the 23-year age difference, they were married for almost 30 years and have two children.

At the time he died, his wife of 29 years, Kathie Lee felt her life was over and remained a devoted mother to their children.

Kathie Lee hopes to find love again

It was earlier reported that the former Today co-host revealed her heart is open to love again. Information obtained by Daily Mail TV says Kathie was caught on camera smooching a mystery man at an outdoor concert. The pair were casually dressed while enjoying themselves as they enjoyed the music.

Back in March, Kathie Lee revealed that she's been on one date since Frank's passing. It's a big step for any woman, so it's fantastic she's being so open to finding new love.

Nevertheless, we wish Kathie Lee good luck and hope her heart finds what it's looking for!
