Re: Kobe Bryant's death...
Kobe Bryant played for the L.A. Lakers for 20 years. He was a beloved sports figure on the L.A. scene. He was a top athlete. After some trouble as a young man, he became a devoted husband and father, and after his retirement a few years ago, he became a philanthropist and mentor in the community. He was well beloved. I remember him very well as Bob was a loyal Lakers fan in his last years, when he was chairbound. He watched every game. He had a personal interest, as he had done some remodeling work for some of the team, and gotten to meet them on a personal level. The deaths of Kobe, his daughter, and the 7 others are tragic. Beautiful, vital young people taken too soon from a horrific accident. It was only a couple of miles from my home in an area I know well.
