My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who showed support and love during this horrible period. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them.
Vanessa Bryant said on her Instagram
Then the widow talked about the pain of losing and stressed how incredible her husband and daughter were.
We were completely devastated by the sudden loss of my beloved husband, Kobe – the incredible father of our children – and of my beautiful and sweet Gianna – a loving, caring and wonderful daughter, and an incredible sister to Natalia, Bianka and Capri.
She also showed empathy for the families of the other 7 people who were also in the helicopter and died in the tragedy.
We are also devastated by families who lost loved ones on Sunday and we share their pain intimately. There are not enough words to describe our pain at the moment.
Vanessa Bryant thanked for having Kobe and Gigi in her family.
I feel comfortable knowing that Kobe and Gigi knew that they were so deeply loved. We were incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever.
He also said he did not know what his life and that of his daughters would be like from now on.
They were our beautiful blessings, taken from us very early. I am not sure what our lives will be from now on and it is impossible to imagine life without them.
