R.I.P. Kobe Bryant

I never knew Mr. Kobe Bryant personally, but I knew of his skills and professionalism from sports news and social media.  He was an extremely popular and well-liked sports celebrity, who ‘owned’ the court for decades.

Mr. Kobe Bean Bryant was an American professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career in the National Basketball Association with the Los Angeles Lakers. He entered the NBA directly from high school and won five NBA championships.

It is with sadness that I read about his too early departure from this earth, and even sadder that his daughter was also tragically killed in the accident.  The helicopter they were traveling in suddenly crashed and killed all passengers.

It will be difficult for his family to move on and my prayers go out to the family, friends, and colleagues of this amazing athlete.  May he be greeted in the Kingdom of Heaven by our almighty father.
