Kathie Lee Gifford found her husband – legendary sports icon Frank Gifford – dead in the family home that they shared in Greenwich, Connecticut, on August 9.
Now, just over one month since Frank's passing, a source close to the Gifford family tells RadarOnline.com exclusively, "Kathie Lee is wants to sell the home because it is just too hard for her to be there without Frank."
"That house really holds too many memories for her and, now that the kids are all grown up, Kathie Lee says that she does not need that much space on her own anymore," says the source.
"The home is immaculate and Kathie Lee knows that she will get a lot of money for it, but she wants the house to be sold to someone that she knows rather than just to anyone," the source tells RadarOnline.com.
"She needs to know that whoever is going to move into her home will cherish it in the same way that her and Frank did."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, following Frank's death at the age of 84, Kathie Lee gave an emotional and tearful tribute to him when she returned to her hosting position alongside BFF Hoda Kotb on the Today Show on August 23.
