It was a celebratory, yet somber day in Los Angeles and throughout the world for those who tuned in to watch Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna's Celebration of Life ceremony. Tens of thousands of people descended onto the Staples Center in Downtown L.A. to attend the memorial service and watched as Kobe's friends and loved ones shared memories of the fallen basketball star.

Vanessa Bryant delivered a moving eulogy for her husband and daughter. Over the past weeks, she has openly shared her grief over her loss and thankfulness for those offering kind words since Kobe and Gianna's passing. Following her speech at the Celebration of Life, two of her friends shared the same photo of Vanessa on Instagram with messages of admiration and support for the widow.

"My MVP🏆❤️ @vanessabryant I tell you everyday you are the strongest woman I know," Lala wrote. "The strength I watched you show today is unmatched❤️Your words today were so beautiful.
