Not sure how to even write this or where to start...my heart is broken, my eyes are sore from crying so much. Yes you were a basketball player to many but to me so much more. You were my Hero, you got me through so much in my life. I have always loved the Lakers, the purple and gold but you came along and I became obsessed. I didn't want to miss a game, a dribble, a moment of you playing. I would stay up to hear every press conference, to watch the sportcenter highlights of the game I just watched...
In June of 2003 one of the happiest days and saddest days of my life...my son was born...I couldn't be there (to immature and selfish at the time) but I got to get a phone call...and hear the my son would be named Kobe after u like I always wanted...that day I got a new Hero and he was named after my first Hero..
I read the news yesterday and could not believe it, didn't want to believe it (still dont). I watched every minute, listened to every word on tv, read everything on social media....I cried, and cried some more...I couldn't sleep...my heart aches, my mind wanders...
U had your princess by your side, I hurt thinking about what that was like. She was a mambacita, she had ur DNA, she was so precious. Y??? Y u, y her, y anyone.
I will watch highlights of you, I'll read about you, and I'll tell everyone just how great u were. I will never forget those 3 hours a night you played a game, and how that helped get me through..
If u do something in life give it ur all, cherish it loved ones, hug ur kids even if they think there to old, say I love you, dont hold grudges. Life is way to short and it can change in a second. #mambaout#kobe#rip#8#24#sad#thegoat#family#kobeforever💜💛
