Since the untimely death of Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven other passengers on Bryant’s helicopter, an abundance of tributes have flooded our social media feeds and taken over our timelines. In a way, mourning as a collective group is made easier — but, in some ways, the constant reminder can be quite heartbreaking. However, in the sea of sadness, one story about Kobe has tugged on everyone’s heartstrings and caused a sea of sweet, yet sobering, feelings.
On Monday night, ESPN anchor Elle Duncan shared her Kobe encounter and the heartfelt story brought tears to everyone’s eyes.
