His poor wife. My God I can not imagine her pain and suffering she must feel right now. The love of her life and her child, all at once. Life is so cruel.

Everyone should be thinking about Vanessa and Kobe’s three other daughters right now, but there is another family that is grieving right now as well. Don’t forget them when you say your prayer 🙏🏻😔
