Widow Vanessa thanked the “millions of people” who expressed her support during these difficult times after the death of her husband Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna.
“There are currently not enough words to describe our pain,” says Vanessa in her acceptance speech. “I am comforted by the knowledge that Kobe and Gigi both knew they were incredibly deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives, “said Vanessa on behalf of herself and her three daughters.
Vanessa also sympathizes with the other relatives who lost their loved ones last Sunday. Yet she says she tries to make the best of it in these sad times. “I am not sure what will happen after today, it is impossible to imagine a life without them. But we wake up every day and try to keep going, because Kobe and our little girl Gigi shine on us to show us the way. “
Vanessa and Kobe were together for 20 years last September. Kobe Bryant was 41 years old.
