Vanessa Bryant spoke movingly about her husband, Kobe, and daughter, Gianna, Monday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It was probably one of the hardest things in her life when she delivered the eulogy of her daughter, Gianna and husband, Kobe. Kobe and Gianna were killed in a helicopter crash in January along with seven others. A celebration of life was held at Staples Center to honor the NBA legend where Shaquille O’Neal got the people in attendance to laugh, while Michael Jordan cracked a “crying meme” joke. But before all that, Vanessa took the stage and delivered a powerful tribute to her fallen family members. She remembered Gianna as a “confident, but not cocky” child, whose hugs and kisses she’ll miss. And remembered Kobe as someone with a “tender heart” who loved his family and how he and Gianna “naturally gravitated toward each other.” “God knew they couldn’t be on this earth without each other,” she said. “He had to bring them home to heaven together.” Watch both eulogies below:
