Vanessa Byrant: "Thank You For Your Prayers- We Definitely Need Them"


I can't even imagine what Vanessa Bryant is going through right now. How she even had the strength to write this is beyond me. Yesterday, she posted a thoughtful, heartbreaking note regarding the passing of her husband, Kobe Bryant, and daughter Gianna. She said, "There aren't enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew 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 blessings taken from us too soon."

She went on to say, "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."
