Corona del Mar cemetery denies reported location of Kobe and Gianna Bryant grave - Los Angeles Times
The Corona del Mar cemetery widely reported as the final resting place of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna says visitors have been leaving tributes to the Lakers great at the wrong gravesite.People began going to Pacific View Memorial Park to place flowers at an unmarked gravesite after it was pictured in a Feb. 14 Daily Mail article.The article said Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter were laid side by side in a private burial plot marked by newly planted purple and yellow flowers, balloons and pinwheels.Death certificates indicated the two were buried at the cemetery in a private service Feb. 7.
Pacific View, where movie legend John Wayne and other notables from entertainment, sports and industry are interred, says it doesn’t release grave locations to the public and declined to comment about the Bryants’ gravesite earlier this month after it was reported they were buried there.
The exact location of the grave is not marked, and a spokeswoman for the cemetery disputed the Daily Mail article.“We cannot divulge any additional details... Feb 1, 2020
Sad, surreal scene in Los Angeles before Lakers' first game since Kobe Bryant's death - San Angelo Standard Times
He painted as people watched, adding careful strokes to a work he called “Carry Me Dad.” It depicted Gianna Bryant on the shoulders of her father Kobe, the Lakers legend, both of whom died Sunday with seven other people in a helicopter crash in Calabasas — an accident that sent shockwaves of sadness the world over.
This was the first time the Lakers played since their deaths. And it felt like a state funeral, dwarfing in emotional importance the game itself, which the Lakers lost, 127-119.
At 7:25 p.m. PT, the lights went off inside the area, sparking chants of “MVP!” and a star-studded tribute to Bryant. Singer Usher started it, belting out a soulful rendition of “Amazing Grace” as he stood on the court between giant displays of Bryant’s two Lakers jersey numbers in gold flowers: 8 and 24.
Cellist Ben Hong then took Usher’s place and played for the crowd as a video of Bryant played on the screens above the court.
“You guys will always be in my heart,” Kobe said in it. “Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart."
R&B music group Boyz II Men followed with the national anthem, crooning with emotion before the microphone was handed to Lakers star LeBron James. He spoke publicly for the first time since the tragedy.
“I want to continue, along with my teammates, to continue his legacy not only for this year but for as long as we can play the game of basketball that we love, because that’s what Kobe Bryant would want,” James said. “So in the words of Kobe Bryant, `Mamba out.’ But in the words of us, `Not forgotten.' Live on brother.”
Lakers luminaries Magic Johnson, Elgin Baylor and James Worthy were among those in attendance, along with Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and LA Galaxy striker Chicharito. Team owner Jeanie Buss sat with boyfriend and comedian Jay Mohr and general manager Rob Pelinka, who was Bryant's agent for much of his career, held his daughter on his lap as he watched.
Fans without tickets came from hours away just to honor Bryant, inc... Feb 1, 2020
Roses for Kobe and Gianna as Lakers return to action - Rome Sentinel
LOS ANGELES (AP) — LeBron James wiped his eyes as the national anthem ended. Wearing Kobe Bryant’s No. 24 jersey, James wrapped teammate Anthony Davis, in a No. 8 jersey, in an embrace.The Lakers’ two current superstars were back on the court Friday night for the team’s first game since Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash five days earlier. “Everybody was emotional,” James said after the Lakers lost to Portland 127-119. Davis, who scored 37 points, added, “We wanted to make him proud.” Portland’s Damian Lillard had 48 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in a Kobe-like performance. “I don’t think anybody walks away from this moment and this situation a winner,” Lillard said. “The memories that we’ll take away from it was just sad and just tough.” James paid tribute by wearing an oversized jersey, finger sleeve, wristbands and Bryant’s shoes. “Just showing that appreciation and love he gave us way before he knew us,” said James, who had 22 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists. The crowd tried to rally the Lakers, breaki... Feb 1, 2020

Girl Scouts plant memorial garden for fallen deputies - The Denver Channel
Scout Troop 62211 planted flowers for a memorial garden. The garden honors the three Douglas County deputies killed in the line of duty: Deputy Wayne Bryant (1932-1978), Deputy Sheriff Ronald King (1956-1999) and Deputy Zackari Parrish (1988-2017). The scouts, who are students at Mountain Ridge Middle School in Highlands Ranch, created the garden to earn their Silver Award. The award requires scouts to do a service project that has a lasting impact on the community.They chose the Highlands Ranch substation partly because Parrish was killed in Highlands Ranch."There's only (a memorial) in Castle Rock, so we wanted to put one that was closer to the families that they could visit," said Abby Guy, a Cadette Scout.Guy and her fellow scouts Juliana Pepper and Sarah Gross planted perennial flowers, so they'll return every year. The memorial includes a plaque with the three deputies' names, and a concrete block where the sheriff's office plans to eventually erect a permanent monument.There are also small markers with the names of individuals and businesses that donated money, time and supplies to the project.
