Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna finally buried during a private ceremony. There will be a public memorial for Kobe, Gianna and the other victims on the 24th of February at Staples Center, where Bryant featured for most of his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The late basketball icon Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were buried on Friday the 7th of February 2020 in a private ceremony near the family’s home, in Southern California according to their death certificates.
The date 24/2/20 has a symbolic meaning to it.
According to Kobe’s widow Vanessa Bryant, the date 24 is for Kobe’s number 24 jersey which he wore for the LA Lakers, 2 for the number 2 jersey worn by Gianna, whose team was coached by Kobe and 20 for the number of years that Vanessa and Kobe were married.
During a public memorial on Monday, several thousand people mourned three of the other victims, Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter Alyssa, Gianna’s teammate.
The other victims were Christina Mauser who was Kobe’s assistant coach and Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton, who was also one of Gianna’s teammates.
In an Instagram post earlier, Vanessa poured out her grief over the death of her husband and daughter.
“My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone,” she said, using a nickname for her daughter. “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.”
