Family. As I scrolled through Kobe’s feed, and Alex and I talk memories and moments we remember about him ... this is the truth that rings out the loudest ... family is what matters most.
We are all feeling sadness from this loss, but all I can think of is that it is a grain of sand compared to what Vanessa must going through right now.
I am sending all of my love and praying for you, your children and the other families involved in today’s tragic turn of events. The most unfair thing in life is to lose a child and husband on the same day. Vanessa, I pray for your strength and that God guides you each step of the way through this unimaginable heartbreak. To the other families who are suffering from this unthinkable tragedy, may God be with you all.
Kobe you meant so much to so many and we will miss you forever. Thank you for your work ethic, your inspiration and your heart. #hero #legend #husband #father ????

It’s taken me hours to work out what to write and still my words won’t ever be enough to describe how I am feeling after the tragic loss of Kobe. This was one special athlete, husband, father and friend. Having to write these words is hard enough but also knowing we have lost an amazing human being and his beautiful and talented daughter Gianna is heartbreaking. The commitment Kobe showed to his sport was inspiring, to go through the pain and to finish a game off like only he could inspired me to try to be better. Sometimes I would only go to games just to watch that clock go down to the last 2:00 minutes knowing that we were about to witness something special. Kobe always talked about Vanessa and his beautiful girls and how proud he was of them. Kobe’s passion was his family and basketball. He was determined to inspire the next generation of boys and girls to embrace the sport that he loved. His legacy will live on. My family’s love and prayers go out to Vanessa and the girls, to Kobe’s basketball family, and of course to the families of those who were tragically lost with him yesterday... ??

I've been thinking about shocking sports deaths (to me; admittedly US-heavy) of my lifetime...Roberto Clemente (I was too young), Thurman Munson, Lyman Bostock, Jose Lima, Elena Baltacha, Payne Stewart, Dale Earnhardt, Reggie Lewis, Hank Gathers, Roy Halliday, Cory Lidle...this is by far the most shocking to me.

omg his known daughter, too

A peaceful man and a role model for many loving this fab character, what a sad sad day for the world itself, not just the world of sports. A "uniter" and philanthrope passing away. I just hope his energy stays to keep different people on track behind the idea of pluralism, candor and forthrightness.

Rest In Peace. 8/24 lives on.

My deepest condolences to his family.

kobe inspired many people and did a lot for sport, this world. it's extremely tragic and even more so knowing his very young daughter was on board.

also let's not forget the other 7 people on board, who also have families and loved ones that have left a permanent void in their lives. this world is just shocking and unbelievable.
