The wife of the late NBA star Kobe Bryant has sent many teary with a powerful tribute she paid her husband and daughter at a memorial service organised for the two at Staple Centre.
She began by mourning the loss of her “baby girl,” Gianna, whom she remembered as a “sweet and gentle soul” who was vivacious, energetic, fiercely intelligent and athletically gifted — a women’s basketball powerhouse in the making who gave amazing hugs and kisses to her family, her mother recounted.
She described her daughter as her sunshine who brightens her day each day.
Speaking about her husband she said he was romantic and a wonderful father. She revealed that family meant first for Kobe while he was alive.
Eulogizing her husband she said;
“He was thoughtful and wrote the best love letters and cards,” she said, noting that Gianna had the same gift for putting her love into words.
“They were funny, happy, silly and they loved life,” she said, adding: “God knew they couldn’t be on this Earth without each other. He had to bring them home to heaven together.”
“Babe, you take care of our Gigi.”
