At the memorial, the wife of the former basketball player and mother of the 13-year-old had a few words to say in tribute to her loved ones.

She said while Kobe and Gianna were alive, they could hardly do without each other and so it was no coincidence that they left the world together. Vanessa said:

"They were so full of joy and adventure. God knew they couldn't be on this Earth without each other. He had to bring them home to have them together. Babe, you take care of our Gigi."

Apart from Gabrielle Union and Vanessa Bryant, many others had the chance to pay tribute to Kobe and Gianna, including the iconic basketball player, Micheal Jordan.

In delivering his tribute, he appreciated the Bryant family for the opportunity to speak. While talking about Kobe's legacy, the 57-year-old, broke down in tears.

In honor of Kobe's love for classical music, Alicia Keys performed Beethoven's Moonlight sonata, a song Kobe had learned to play years before, in a bid to profess his romance with his wife, Vanessa.

Kobe and Gianna died in a helicopter crash along with seven others and are survived by Vanessa Bryant, Natalia Bryant, and Capri Bryant.
