Kobe Bryant is dead. It reminds us that death is something we have to face sooner or later. It behooves that we cherish every moment we have with our loved ones.

Kobe died in a helicopter crash last Sunday together with his 13-year old daughter, Gianna, and seven others on board.

In the movie “Serendipity,” we learned that the ancient Greeks didn’t write obituaries. After a man died, they only asked one question, “Did he have passion?”

For sure, Kobe had passion making him one of the most feared competitors in the basketball court. When he retired from the game he so loved, he was rated as the #7 Best NBA Player of all Time.

With all his accomplishments in the NBA, he’ll also be remembered for showing the same passion in his off-court activities in business and charity work and, most importantly, in his role as a devoted family man, husband, and father.

As fate would have it, Kobe and Gianna died on their way to Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California, for a youth basketball event.

At 41, it feels surreal to see him gone. At the same time, we can only mourn the untimely passing of his young daughter with her promise unfulfilled.
