So sad. We are heartbroken, but it makes you want to examine your own life. Are we ready? This is an innermost question for the young and the old because life is so fragile. Sometimes we are here today and gone today. That is one reason we should never put off forgiving each other or encouraging each other or loving each other because we might not get another chance. Not even to say goodbye.
Kobe Bryant, the retired Los Angeles Lakers great, was killed Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California. He was 41.
Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria Onore, known as Gigi, was among the victims.
Nine people are believed to have died in the crash, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.
“There were no survivors. We have a manifest that indicates that there was nine people on board the aircraft — the pilot plus eight individuals,” Villanueva said at a press conference Sunday afternoon.
