The tribute service for the late National Basketball Association (NBA) star, Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gigi has come and gone.
The service which happened at the Staple Center, Los Angeles, saw the wife of the late NBA legend, Venessa Bryant deliver a powerful tribute to her late husband and daughter.
According to her, knowing that she will never be able to see Gianna go to highschool, teach her how to drive a car, watch her get married and bare children is very sad because she was totally innocent and genuine.
She added that Kobe Bryant was the most amazing husband and he loved her more than she could ever express.
Her words, “I’d like to thank everyone for coming today. The outpouring of love and support that my family has felt from around the world has been so uplifting. Gianna Bryant is an amazingly sweet and gentle soul. She was always thoughtful
“She was daddy’s girl but I know she loved her mamma. She was one of my very best friends. She had the best laugh. It was infectious, it was pure and genuine. Kobe and Gianna naturally gravitated toward each other.”
“We will not be able to see Gianna go to highschool with Natalia … we didn’t get the chance to teach her how to drive a car,”
“I won’t be able to tell her how gorgeous she looks on her wedding day. I’ll never get to see my baby girl walk down the aisle, have a father-daughter dance with her daddy … or have babies of her own.”
On Kobe, “He was the most amazing husband. Kobe loved me more than I could ever express or put into words. I have no idea how I deserved a man who loved or wanted me more than Kobe. We loved each other with our whole beings, two perfectly imperfect people making a beautiful family and raising our sweet and amazing girls.”
