It has been over a year since the tragic passing of NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his protege and daughter, Gianna Bryant, yet the pain remains for those who they have left behind.

While the world mourned their death, Vanessa Bryant, wife and mother to the deceased, slowly built the courage and gathered the strength to go on with life for her daughters.

In an interview with People, Vanessa revealed, “I can’t say that I’m strong every day. I can’t say that there aren’t days when I feel like I can’t survive to the next.”

Vanessa wakes up with the same heartache every day while trying to be the best mother for her kids, Capri, 1, Bianka, 4, and Natalia, 18. The mother-of-four draws motivation from Kobe and Gigi to keep going despite the challenges.

According to the late athlete’s wife, she still feels their never-ending love inspire her to become better as days pass. Meanwhile, Capri, Bianka, and Natalia give her strength to endure the sorrow. She shared:

“The pain is unimaginable [...] Lying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again.”

It’s no secret that Vanessa mourns for and misses her husband and daughter every day, sometimes even taking to social media her sentiments. As a wife and mother, she still questions why such tragedy had to take away her loved ones.

Vanessa and Kobe have been married for nearly 20 years before passing and were raising their daughters together in a beautiful home. Sadly, the 41-year-old and his 13-year-old daughter died after a helicopter crashed near Los Angeles.

In February, the National Transportation and Safety Board revealed pilot Ara Zobayan’s poor decisions while flying the aircraft that led to its downfall, killing all nine people on board.

Zobayan reportedly violated federal standard rules by flying into clouds, which made visibility worse. Instead of switching to auto-pilot, slowing down, or making an emergency landing, he continued further.

Understandably, Zobayan might have believed he could get through it as the destination drew closed, allowing his famous client to get to his schedule on time.
