Vanessa Bryant widow of the late NBA star Kobe Bryant could not hold back her tears as she read tributes to her loving husband and beautiful daughter Gianna during their ‘Celebration of life’ ceremony held for the two.
The event was attended by over 20,00 fans who knew Kobe personally and professionally as well as people from the sports fraternity. The ceremony took place at the Staples center in downtown Los Angeles.
Vanessa delivered a very emotional speech as she talked about her husband and daughter. She stated that she was Kobe’s first girlfriend , first love and wife. She added that one thing she regrets is knowing that she would never be able to attend Gigi’s wedding.
She however made mention of the fact that the relationship between her husband and daughter could be described as the best father daughter relationship in the world and she believes that is the reason why God decided to take them both on the same day.
