Vanessa Bryant continues to share her grief after the unimaginable tragedy of losing her husband Kobe and 13-year-old daughter Gianna.
Vanessa took to Instagram on Monday to express her disbelief that her husband and daughter are actually gone.
‘SO INAPPROPRIATE’: Analyst slammed over 'disgusting' remark about female gymnasts
“My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone,” she wrote.
“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 realise 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.”
Father and daughter, along with seven others, died when their Helicopter crashes over Los Angeles on January 26.
They had been on their way to a basketball game, in which Gianna was supposed to play at Kobe’s nearby Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California.
Vanessa, who married the NBA star in 2001, has written about Kobe and Gigi several times.
She’s shared family photos and footage from a jersey retirement ceremony for Gigi at the teen’s school, as well as a notice about a public memorial for both Bryants on February 24 in LA.
As she has in previous posts, Vanessa on Monday asked for prayers for the other families affected by the heartbreaking tragedy.
Staggering new discovery in Kobe crash
Wreckage from the helicopter did not show any sign of engine failure, the National Transportation Safety Board said on Friday.
The NTSB issued an investigative update that included factual details. Findings about a cause for the crash aren’t expected for a year or more.
Investigators said the twin-engine Sikorsky S-76B was traveling at more than 180 mph (290 km/h) and 4000 feet (1219 meters) per minute when it crashed.
The helicopter's instrument panel was destroyed and most of the devices were displaced. The flight controls were broken and suffered fire damage.
Investigators believe that since a tree branch at the crash site was cut, the engines were working and rotors turning at the time of impact.
All four of the helicopter's blades had similar damage, the report stated.
John Cox, an aviation-safety consultant, said the NTSB's report was further indication that the pilot likely became disoriented in the thick fog and clouds.
The pilot had told air-traffic controllers he was climbing to 4000 feet - presumably to get above the cloud layer. The helicopter began turning left, then descended rapidly.
Cox called the aircraft's path “classic symptoms” of a disoriented pilot.
