This past Sunday, the world lost an all-time great basketball player that was a tremendous father who was enjoying his family some four years after retiring from the NBA.
Not only did Kobe Bryant lose his life in the helicopter crash, but his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, also perished in the crash in Calabasas, California.
Kobe and Gianna are survived by their wife and mother Vanessa, and their daughters and sisters Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.
Soon after, we found out that Kobe began using helicopters to avoid being stuck in traffic and spend more time with his family.
According to a report by People, ‘Kobe and Vanessa had a deal that they would never fly on a helicopter together,’ just in case an accident would happen and the children would be left without both parents.
Unfortunately, that pact became a reality and now Vanessa is left trying to pick up the pieces and keep the family together and sane without Kobe and Gianna.
