Kathie Lee Gifford is remembering her late husband, Frank Gifford, one year after his death.
On Tuesday, Aug. 9, the Today host shared an open letter on Today.com to pay tribute to the NFL star, who passed away from natural causes at age 84 in August 2015.
"I've gotten through this past year the way I've gotten through every day of my life: faithfully trusting God to do what God does, which is to show up, redeem and restore," she wrote. “God doesn't promise you a year. He promises you a day at a time. He broke life into 24-hour periods because that's all we can handle. The next day, you reach for your fresh cup of mercy that you need every bit as much as the day before.”

Kathie Lee proceeded to share details from the day of Frank's death. "When I found Frank on that beautiful Sunday morning, he was already gone,” the 62-year-old continued. “The look on his face was complete and total wonder. I felt in that moment he saw Jesus, and Jesus took his breath away. That's the way I want to go.”
The two married in 1986 and have a son, Cody, 26, and a daughter, Cassidy, 23, together.
