Titkellem għall-ewwel darba mart Kobe, Vanessa

L-armla ta’ Kobe Bryant, Vanessa, għaddiet l-ewwel kummenti tagħha mindu l-inċident li kien involut fih ir-raġel tagħha u bintha ta’ 13-il sena. F’post fuq Instagram li kien jinkludi ritratt tal-familja kollha, hi qalet li tinsab iddispjaċuta ferm. Stqarret li ma għandiex biżżejjed kliem biex tesprimi l-uġigħ li qed tħoss.

Il-koppja kellhom erba’ bniet, inkluż Gianna li kellha 13-il sena u li sfortunatament mietet fl-inċident.

S’issa għadhom ma ġewx ippublikati d-dettalji dwar il-funeral.

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to MambaOnThree.org. To further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports, please visit MambaSportsFoundation.org. Thank you so much for lifting us up in your prayers, and for loving Kobe, Gigi, Natalia, Bianka, Capri and me. #Mamba #Mambacita #GirlsDad #DaddysGirls #Family ❤️

Il-kawża ta’ x’ġiegħel il-helicopter jaqa’ għadha mhix ċara. Bryant kien fi triqtu biex jikkowċja t-tim tal-basketball ta’ bintu li kienu se jieħdu sehem f’turnew lokali ġewwa Mamba Sports Academy.

Vanessa rringrazzjat lin-nies li wrew sapport u ħabbret li se tagħmel fond biex tgħin u tagħti sapport lill-familji li kienu affetwati f’dan l-inċident – The Mamba Sports Foundation.
