La mujer de Kobe Bryant habla por primera vez de la tragedia

Gran conmoción por la trágica muerte de Kobe Bryant
Kobe con Gigi, por la que sentía debilidad porque también era una forofa del baloncesto.

"Me consuela saber que Kobe y Gigi sabían que eran tan profundamente amados. Fuimos increíblemente bendecidos al tenerlos en nuestras vidas. Ojalá estuvieran aquí con nosotros para siempre", declaraba Vanessa Bryant en Instagram junto a esta foto familiar.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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 ❤️

Vanessa Bryant ha explicado que "estamos completamente devastadas" y ha dicho que "mis niñas y yo queremos dar las gracias a los millones de personas que nos han mostrado su apoyo y su cariño en este horrible momento".

 

Y es que, como todas las muertes prematuras e inesperadas de grandes figuras, la de Kobe Bryant ha dejado una estela de sorpresa, dolor y conmoción en el mundo entero, especialmente en el del deporte.

 

El pasado 26 de enero, cuando saltó la noticia, nadie podía creerse que una de las grandes leyendas del baloncesto hubiera muerto con sólo 41 años. Esta semana, en Pronto, ampliamos información sobre el accidente de helicóptero que acabó con la vida del exjugador estadounidense y la de una de sus hijas, Gigi, de 13 años, y otras siete personas.
