Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa has admitted that she is yet to come to terms with reality regarding the deaths of her husband and daughter, Gianna.
Kobe, Gianna and seven other people were involved in a helicopter crash last month while they were travelling near Calabasas, California.
Vanessa has posted a heartfelt message on Instagram concerning the death of her 41-year-old husband and 13-year-old daughter.
Vanessa's heartbreaking message was meant in part to help others struggling with similar problems. She said that while she wanted to be with Kobe and Gianna she realised she had to be strong for her living daughters.
The post reads as follow:
"I’ve been unwilling to express feelings. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time.
"It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me.
"It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?
"I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realise I need to be strong and be here for my three daughters. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process.
"I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they are all here and this torments would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all."
