10:00 am
>> announcer: from nbc, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> hi, everybody, it's monday, august0, 2015. jenna bush is here filling in while kathie lee is off. i know you have heard the news by now about frank gifford. he and kathie lee -- she always called him frank gifford, both names. he passed away yesterday in connecticut and i have to tell you, it's one of those things that frank weighed 178 pounds. you knew his weight exactly and you knew that he was in good
10:01 am
physical health so to hear the news was shocking. it was weird. i was -- you know, i was flying back from a weekend with friends in new orleans and when i landed i looked at my phone and it happened to be my birthday so i was looking at birthday wishes and you know how you're flipping through things and i saw a text from kathie lee and i looked at it and she left a voice mail that said frank had passed and i kept reading it and rereading it. >> and thinking it wasn't true. >> thinking it couldn't have been true. she asked for people not to come to her house yesterday so i left the airport and drove to her house. and when i got there she looked at me and she said "i'm so glad you never listen to me." >> she wanted you there for sure. >> i think you need -- >> how is she doing? >> you know -- you know how she talks about her faith? and i know she lives her faith and i believed it. but i have to tell, you i didn't believe it more than i did yesterday when i saw her after
10:02 am
that. frank had passed away hours before and she said she was rejoicing in his life. when she said it, jenna, i mean, like you felt it the. it wasn't the kind of thing that you say -- you know, i know there's initial shock when someone's passed because we've all lost someone and we know what it feels like, but not like this. and i said to her -- and i was crying and she was holding my hands. >> she was comforting you! >> and she said "let me tell you something. let me tell you what a tragedy is. you know those little kids in the truly brave video? some of the kids who didn't make it? young kids with cancer? that's a tragedy." she said "let me tell you about frank gifford. frank gifford was a hall of famer, was an incredible football broadcasting legend and more than all that he was a family man." and she said "he built this family." and she said "he is a try yuctr.
10:03 am
he got to live until almost 89 years old." >> some people don't like this word but the legacy he left are his kids, his children, the most kind, loving kids and the way that kathie lee talked about frank. >> and you look at cassidy and co-di -- and he has three other children from a previous marriage -- but we came to know cass and cody the best and to watch how they are. and i only saw cody yesterday but i have to tell you, i am in awe of that whole family and -- >> the fact that kathie lee -- she's taught me a lot about faith and i know she has you, too, probably, tons and sometimes kathie lee she talks about it and it's one thing to talk about it and it's another thing to live your faith. and it's incredible to witness. >> she does. and you know what's funny? we all got to know frank.
10:04 am
frank wasn't just the husband of someone you worked with. and you know what's funny? think about this. when i was first starting to work with kath, i went out to their house to meet him and cody and cass and frank said to me "i know a little something about a hit show because i had one on "monday night football."" he said "let me tell you how you can have a hit show with kathie lee. you have to trust her with everything you have." and he said, "look at me, she is the most trustworthy person i have ever known." i never forgot -- that showed how much love he had for her. but he came on our show a bunch of times and he was always -- he was always fun. i mean, i have to say, when he showed up here, we knew we were going to laugh and i think we have a little bit of frank on our show. >> frank gifford is in the house, baby. you were 56 when we got married.
10:05 am
i was 20. [ laughter ] and we proceeded to have two children. you were 60 when we had cody and 63 when we had cass, right? >> and both of them have done extraordinarily well academically. >> remember when we hosted the olympics together? >> one of the times we hosted, yes, it was calgary olympics, the late roon arlege wanted to put frank and kathie lee together. we actually were early on in our relationship. >> we were newly married and tom shales, the esteemed "washington post" critic said "they are two marshmallows sitting by the fire." now he's probably going to write "two geriatric ken and barbies sitting there." >> years ago you did your own show with regis and regis would get sick i'd pop in and i'd just sit there. so here i am, i'm sitting here. [ laughter ] >> and you're doing it magnificently. >> thank you, my darling.
10:06 am
>> so sweet! >> oh, my gosh! >> my favorite thing, wherever she's been generous enough to invite us over to her house, it's the way he laughs at her. >> he does. he'd still think she was totally hysterical. >> and everybody knows she's hilarious but it's good to marry a man who can see this. >> we have a few more clips. we were just reminiscing. everybody has a frank story. i'm talking about a guy in the gym came up to me and said "my son met frank gifford when he was this tall." people were stopping me. they all have a moment with frank and we had our share of moments, too, here on the show a few years ago. they did like this he said/she said kind of game. anyway, take a look. >> very grainy. >> what did he say again? >> i don't know, he says i like it when he tells me that i look skinny. >> and he says yes to everything that you say. >> that is not true, but i do like when he does say yes. you know what i love about him
10:07 am
so much is he's a very giving person. frank is a really generous, sweet person and he's a good man and i'm very grateful for him. >> it's hard to look at those clips. it feels like just yesterday we were sitting here and she was making jokes and him and her and them and the kids and the rest of us. >> it shows how much of a family this show is. >> yeah! >> that he was part of your family, too. >> he really was. he really was. i know when he came on the show, you know, he and i shared a little something special, too, i think. >> he said something about you when he came on the show once that i think we want to look at that shows how he thought about you. >> when i first met hoda, the first two or three minutes i thought "how is this going to work?" >> why? >> you seemed so different. >> we are! >> five minutes later she really came into our lives. she's an extraordinary woman and
10:08 am
i think most of the people share that same feeling but she is so much fun, so bright, so quick, very special lady. >> i thought that was going to make you cry but it made me cry. >> it made me cry, too. we know frank as our friend and a friend of the show and a friend of us. but to the nation, really, to new york especially now the nation he was a legend. you look at all the newspapers today and it talks about a man for all seasons and the "post." i love this picture of him, the ultimate giant. but he was in the hall of fame back in 1977 and it's interesting because i've never seen this clip but i know he spoke at that event. let's take a look. >> it's helped me with a lot of young people and young stars
10:09 am
coming up in the game today who can lose sight of what it really is all about. what we do on the field is about as meaningful as what takes place in the stands. and what we can do to contribute to the help of young people i have always tried to do and what we can do to help the community in which we are part of. >> and the kids always right there. cass, by the way, called up this morning and i spoke to her for a little bit and she was so grateful for the outpouring of love and atext that is coming not only from the nfl and they talked about him at the golf match and they keep talking about frank but also from people here at nbc because everyone's asking and everyone wants to know how they can help and all the people -- you know, it's so funny. you know how sometimes you think about twitter and you think god, i hate twitter. it's been such a place for people to talk about what a
10:10 am
wonderful guy frank -- i always want to say is, but was. meredith was one of the people, she tweeted -- >> meredith vieira tweeted "so heartbroken to learn about frank gifford's passing, he was a true gentleman." kendall jenner tweeted "very sad day, rest in peace to my godfather, the legend." which he was. >> a lot of people don't know he's the godfather to kendall and kylie jenner. >> ellen degeneres tweeted "sending love to kathie lee over the loss of her husband frank, you are in our thoughts, by the way." >> and they're endless. we want to thank everybody on our facebook page. it means the world to kath and the kids. and christine guaardner is a member of their families. she's kathie lee's dearest friend and assistant and we love her here and she's heartbroken as well. >> she's been working with them forever. she raised their kids.
10:11 am
>> so a lot of people want to know how they can help. kathie lee is asking for donation to cassidy's place in l lieu of flowers. this is the place kath and frank built to help kids -- some of them were addicted to -- they had aids issues or addicted to drugs. they helped all kinds of disadvantaged children, people who have all kinds of issues. it's cassidy's place and they would love you to donate anything you'd like to give to them. kath, i don't know if you're watch, you're probably not but a miss you and i love you. more on frank gifford and his incredible life after this. i thought activia was for big digestive issues. until i realized our body handles a lot. 1,100 meals a year...

10:19 am
to be remembered a certain way but when you listen to how people talk about him, how everybody talks about him, this is what they think. you know when kathie talks about their house and the place they loved, don't you love that they got to spend their last morning together having a cup of coffee? >> they did. i think, joanne, if you could put this on facebook. we hear you on facebook. people are posting things and they're talking about things and they want to share and we're glad that we have a place you can because we feel so connected and i know you guys, do, too. and i know you want to reach out and help kath and facebook is a good place to do it. but this answer is, like -- this is what any man would dream of, right, at the end? this is exactly what any mean would dream of leaving behind. >> and also in that -- don't you
