Vanessa Bryant shares a heartwarming message about Kobe and her daughter Gianna: “My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone”

After the unfortunate passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven other people in a helicopter crash, the world was in complete shock. People all over the world sent their condolences to families that lost someone that day, but especially to the Bryant family. Basketball fans all around the world lost their favorite player and someone that made an incredible impact on the game and culture itself. Almost three weeks have passed after the incident, and Vanessa Bryant is still coping with everything that happened in her family.

On her Instagram account, Vanessa shared a heartwarming message about the grieving process she is going through. Losing her husband and one daughter is a type of tragedy nobody should ever go through. Vanessa said it’s also important to pray for other victims of this incident because their families are also going through a tough period in their lives.

“I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone, but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi, but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God, I wish they were here, and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.”
