Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were laid to rest in a private memorial and funeral service surrounded by grieving widow and mother, Vanessa, and close family, according to their newly released death certificates.

LA Lakers icon Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, were finally laid to rest in a private memorial service surrounded by close family, including widow and mother Vanessa Bryant, 37, and daughters and sisters Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 mos. The intimate, emotional ceremony was held at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar, CA, according to their newly released death certificates acquired on Feb. 11. Kobe’s death certificate also revealed his final cause of death was by “blunt trauma” in a “commercial helicopter crash.”

The news comes one day after Vanessa took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute to her late husband and daughter, revealing in her unimaginable grief that she was unwilling to believe that they had really gone. “My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. 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,” she shared in the post.
