Kobe Bryant and daughter, Gianna were laid to rest side-by-side at this private ‘family estate’ burial plot where heart rosaries are placed on their headstone, exclusive DailyMail.com photos show.
The father and daughter’s funeral service was quietly held last Friday at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, California with no photographers present, following their tragic helicopter deaths on January 26.
The private plot is at the very top of the cemetery and looks directly down onto Newport Coast toward Bryant’s family home and the Pacific Ocean.
Newly planted purple and yellow flowers, which are representative of Bryant’s Lakers team colors, surround the burial plot, as do ‘love’ balloons, Valentine’s Day decorations and colorful flower pinwheels – which signify a child’s death.
The unmarked headstone has heart rosaries placed on either side of it, representative of the family’s Catholic faith.
Kobe Bryant and daughter had attended church together and took communion the morning they died.
A source told DailyMail.com that prior to Friday, the large number of colorful flower pinwheels placed along the back of the plot were not there.They also explained the plot was one of the most expensive in the cemetery and is located at the very top of the cemetery.
In death certificates released this week by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health, their causes of death are listed as blunt trauma and indicated that they died in a ‘rapid’ manner in the crash in the hills of Calabasas.On Thursday, Bryant’s widow Vanessa renamed Bryant’s charity to honor Gianna, announcing that the Mamba Sports Foundation will now be known as the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.’Because there is no #24 without #2, we have updated the Mamba Sports Foundation to now be called the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation,’ Vanessa wrote on her Instagram account.’Our mission remains the same – and stronger than ever – to provide opportunities to young people through sports,’ she continued.
Thank you all for the outpouring of support and your kind donations to date as we carry forth Kobe and Gigi’s legacy.’We hope to empower young athletes in a world they left us all to help shape.’ A public memorial is scheduled for Bryant on February 24 at the Staples Center.
The date pays tribute to the ’24’ jersey number that Bryant wore since the 2006-07 season. Bryant is survived by Vanessa and his other daughters Natalia, 17; Bianka, three; and Capri, seven months.
