Kobe Bryant And Daughter Laid To Rest In Private Funeral

Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, have been laid to rest.

According to ET, a private funeral for the two was held at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar, California, on Friday, February 7. That is two weeks after they died alongside seven others in a helicopter crash. The legendary NBA star is survived by his wife, Vanessa Bryant, three other children, Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months.

“Vanessa and the family wanted a private service to mourn their loss,” a source tells ET. “The ceremony was extremely hard for everyone as it’s still hard for them to grasp they lost two beautiful souls.”

Since “24” is a special date, seeing that it’s the number Kobe sported on his jersey since the 2006-07 season, a public memorial for fans will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where Bryant played with the Lakers for his entire 20-year career.

May they rest in peace! Continued prayers to all Kobe’s family, friends and fans!
