I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.

Vanessa has posted on Instagram several times since their deaths, offering support for the other victims and sharing memories of her husband and daughter. She has thanked the world for their thoughts and prayers, but has also asked for privacy.

Vanessa also posted that a memorial for Kobe, Gianna, and the other seven victims will be held at the Staples Center on February 24th. 

A public memorial will also be held for Orange Coast College basketball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri, and his daughter Alyssa on Monday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
