“There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now,” Kobe Bryant wife, Vanessa breaks silence on death of husband and daughter

Vanessa in a post on Instagram on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, said she and her surviving girls are “completely devastated.”

She said, “Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable,” she wrote. “I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever.”

Vanessa, 37, added that “there aren’t enough words” to describe the pain she feels along with her daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and 7-month-old Capri.

She, however, said “I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon.”

The NBA legend’s widow further extended her condolences to the families of the seven other people killed in the crash, noting that “we share in their grief intimately.”

Read full tribute from Vanessa to her husband, daughter and seven the others:

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality.
