I think I've entered a different phase of this thing. I'm finding it more difficult to look at his face and watch things about him. Even speaking on him in the past tense, I still get a pang of WTF??? I miss Kobe. I miss seeing him around. I enjoyed seeing him happy, seeing him living, seeing him write the next chapter in his life. There was so much more to come from him...I'm not ashamed to say this has wounded me deeply in ways I don't even understand. Maybe one day it will make some semblance of sense.

Continue to Rest in Paradise Kobe, Gigi.

Could not have said it better. I just started randomly thinking about Kobe as I sit here eating lunch. The image of him and Pau embracing with confetti falling around them. It's a famous image, and my mind just keeps going back to it. It was one of my happiest moments and certainly one of theirs. It's still a joyous memory but now it brings an undertone of sadness with it. Hard to explain but I'm sure you understand. Still hurts man.

Same. My emotions are everywhere. I loved him so much. I still adore the man. I love his family, they're like our family. I find myself watching clips from that treacherous day over and over again and I don't know why I do that to myself. It hurts more every time. The pain hasn't subsided. I keep imagining his smile, how he was such a good guy and misunderstood his entire life. He finally found peace and the world finally embraced him for the man we have lovingly known, adored, and idolized for 24 years. As MJ stated, a piece of me died that day. And then Covid happened, and it's like Kobe and Gianna's will was just too strong for this planet. They left and everything has stopped since. Man I miss them and want them back, I really want them back.

I don't know if anyone's posted this, it's from April. Amazing story from Gordon Hayward on his first interaction with Kobe after his retirement.

Yeah, me4, except the "making sense" part. There is no sense in this. Never was and never will be. Just tragic death.

Worst day in Sports history, it will never be the same again after the helicopter tragedy.
