Kathie Lee Gifford's 87-year-old mother recently went to be with the Lord. During this difficult time, Kathie Lee has received a huge outpouring of love and support from friends and fans all across the country.
Yesterday, Kathie Lee was able to speak candidly about her late mother on the Today Show. Telling the viewers how incredibly inspiring her mom was saying that her mom wasn't afraid of dying because she knew where she was going. Kathie Lee said it beautifully, [mom had] "the strongest faith of anyone I’ve ever known.” Kathie then went on to talk about the amazing legacy Joan left.
She spoke about how everyone at Joan's elderly care facility would talk about how Joan led them to the Lord, or how Joan prayed with them, one person also said that Joan had given her a Bible. Joan had every excuse in the book not to trust Jesus as her Lord and savior. She was an orphan and had loss upon loss throughout her life.
But despite all of that, she chose to follow Christ. Kathie Lee went on to talk about how strong her mom was saying, "Do you know what she always remembered? What she had. What she still had,” she said. “And she had the Lord in a deep, deep way.”
What an incredible blessing Joan was to the world. I am smiling from ear to ear thinking about how right now she is dancing with Jesus. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kathie Lee and her family during this difficult time. God bless!
