Her recent eulogy at Bryant's memorial left people moist eyed and with this video she reminisced the good ol' days.
"Babe, you take care of our Gigi...May you both rest in peace and have fun in Heaven until we meet again one day," said a tearful Vanessa at Kobe and Gigi's memorial.
Yes! Kobe was fun to be around and in the presence of his daughters, he was no less than a little child himself. And this fun side of Kobe was cherished by Vanessa recently when she shared a video of her family having quality time at home.
The footage from Kobe’s documentary, Kobe Bryant’s Muse and it shows the Bryant family enjoying a night at home together, HuffPost reported. The video sees the Bryants playing cards, dancing, watching TV, and playing with each other. What's unmissable is Kobe's dedication and affection towards his daughters and wife.
“Missing you both so much #GigiBryant and @kobebryant … Even missing your ‘earthquakes’ - (leg shakes),” Vanessa captioned the video, referring to a particularly sweet moment at the end of the video.
She also pointed out that the song playing in the background is Beyonce's XO the lyrics of which are moving and heartwarming.
“Your love is bright as ever. Even in the shadows. Baby kiss me. Before they turn the lights out. Your heart is glowing and I’m crashing into you. Baby kiss me, before they turn the lights out, before they turn the lights out,” she wrote.
At Kobe and Gigi's memorial service, held on February 24, Beyonce sang the very same song along with Halo. “I’m here because I love Kobe, and this was one of his favorite songs,” the Grammy winner said at the memorial.
In her moving eulogy, a sobbing Vanessa thanked everyone who showed up and the people who have supported her during these tough days. “Thank you all so much for being here, it means so much to us,” the devastated widow, 37, began her speech after an introduction from Jimmy Kimmel. “I’d like to thank everyone for coming today. The outpouring of love and support that my family has felt from around the world has been so uplifting.”
In a particularly heart-wrenching moment, the 37-year-old tearfully said, "I won’t be able to tell her [Gianna] how gorgeous she [Natalia] looks on her wedding day. I’ll never get to see my baby girl walk down the aisle, have a father-daughter dance with her daddy … or have babies of her own.”
Seeing her daughter walk down the aisle is one of the dream every mother cherishes and the pain of permanently losing the opportunity to see Gianna on her wedding day was visible on Vanessa's face as she talked about it.
She concluded her emotional eulogy by saying, "We love you both and miss you. Forever and always, Mommy.” Not a single dry eye was seen after she was done speaking. This video of the Bryants having a fun time together only makes it hard for Kobe's fans to accept that the man who inspired so many isn't among them anymore.
Stay strong, Vanessa, you are not alone!
