Vanessa Bryant remembers her ‘best friend’ in latest Instagram posts

The bodies of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven other people killed in a helicopter crash last month in Calabasas, California, have been released to their families, according to the website for the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner. The Staples Center has a capacity of 20,000. LIVE, tweeted: "Cleanup continues and we have filled a full 40 yard roll off trash bin with flowers".

The Staples Center marks the ideal platform to hold a ceremony remembering the life of Bryant who sealed his legacy into the National Basketball Association during his 20-year-career with the Los Angeles Lakers, where the majority of the games were played at the Staples Center which opened at the height of Bryant's career in 1999.

A game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies is scheduled to take place at Staples Center after the memorial, at 7:30 p.m.

But before Bryant posted the videos, she began with a photograph of the auditorium and words that make us cry every time we read them. That question has been now answered.

Bryant and Gianna are survived by his wife Vanessa, and daughters Natalia, Bianka and Capri.

Jay-Z says it's still tough to try and cope with the death of Kobe Bryant.

Bryant was killed January 26 at the age of 41, along with his daughter Gianna and seven others, when his helicopter crashed in the hills above Calabasas, California. "We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe - the awesome father of our children and my lovely, sweet Gianna - a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and fantastic sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri".

Angel Stadium in nearby Anaheim, California, will host a memorial service on February 10, for baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri, and their daughter Alyssa who also lost their lives in the crash.

In June 2019, Jay-Z officially became the first hip hop billionaire, making him the 5th wealthiest African-American and the wealthiest American musician.

Another young player, Payton Chester, was also killed along with her mother Sarah Chester, and pilot Ara Zobayan.

Vanessa also shared a seperate photo of her daughter's jersey, which was framed.
