Cassidy Gifford’s Tribute To Her Dad Frank Gifford
“Very few people are blessed enough to call their father a legend, and an even smaller number are able to share that notion with the rest of the world,” Cassidy, 22, wrote about the football legend. “Today of all days I can genuinely say I am humbled by the outpour of love and support my family has received.”
“Yesterday, I lost my best friend… His kindness was infectious, and his grace, beyond compare .. And despite the worldly passing of an incredible man, I undoubtedly know heaven gained one stud of an angel,” Cassidy added. “Philippians 4:13 has never rung so true.. You were an unparalleled Giant in all sense of the word, Dad.. So keep doin’ you up there, because no one does it better, and no one ever will.”
