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

Kobe Bryant was just 18 when he started playing for the Lakers, but by the end of his 20-year career — all of it as a Laker — the Black Mamba was a five-time world champion, two-time Olympic gold medalist and 18-time All-Star. His post-basketball career included an Oscar for the animated short “Dear Basketball” and a series of children’s books that became New York Times bestsellers. He was 41.

Ashley Greer, owner of Atelier Ashley Flowers in Alexandria, Va., said clients tend to get stressed out about their flower choices. “Some people are very self-conscious when it comes to flowers and their impressions,” Greer says. “People think that the flowers they use at an event or that they send are a direct reflection on them. And they want to be careful that their arrangement reflects their taste, their style and the occasion.” Condolence flowers may be what people most obsess about. “When you are sending something for a funeral you want to be sensitive,” Greer says. “Sometimes people say they don’t want to send anything that looks fun. They prefer something white and green.”Dowling, whose studio is in Alexandria, says condolence flowers “don’t have to be all white. Having flowers that are soft and comforting and focus on texture is a good way to go. Make them personal, and possibly reflecting a certain flower the person loved. Then they can really evoke the sense of a warm hug.”New York flower designer and illustrator Cathy Graham says her go-to sympathy flowers include a paperwhite plant and a white or blue hydrangea plant that could bloom for a few weeks. “You don’t have to do all white, but I would not use bright, festive colors.”Don’t overlook household pets when you are creating a bouquet or arrangement to send to someone, says Graham. “Lilies and other flowers are bad for cats,” says Graham, who worries about that with her own two ginger cats Reggie and Cheddar. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals publishes a list of plants that are poisonous to pets.
The main thing with flowers is don’t overthink them. “People are so touched by your making the effort to send flowers that pretty much whatever you send will be appreciated,” Graham says. SKC Photography
Included in this Atelier Ashley Flowers design for a baby shower are ranunculus, which means radiant charm. It never hurts to let a woman who is about to give birth know that she is radiant, owner Ashley Greer says.
Anne Chertoff, chief operating officer of Beaumont Etiquette, a New York consulting firm, says it’s always a good idea to check on religious practices and customs. “People like to know the rules,” she says. “They can think about the message they want to get across. Then it’s up to them if and when they want to use the rules or break with them.” For instance, flowers for a funeral often center on lilies. But she says instead of flowers, it’s customary for Jews to send or bring food to the homes of the family who aren’t supposed to cook during the shiva, which lasts seven days, and also to feed people who come to pay respects to the family. “I’m Jewish, so I would send an edible arrangement,” she says. Amy Merrick, a flower designer who ran her own studio in Brooklyn and now focuses on events and teaching, says she’s found that many customers don’t have a very good knowledge of the varieties of flowers and place more importance on the style or mood of their arrangements. “The average person does have an interest in what flowers represent, but not in the historical context,” she says. People are sending their own messages, choosing them based on the personality of the recipient and the personality of the flowers. “I think buying a bunch of daisies signifies this is a sweet, free-spirited personality, whereas an orchid has a more elegant feel to it,” Merrick says.Tif Hunter

Brazos County flower farm hit hard due to freeze - KBTX
We normally sell wholesale to florists. We sell to many of the florists in Bryan / College Station. We also have flash sales and you pick here at our farm so obviously we're done right now. But in the spring of 2020 we'll be back," said Monroe.
She and her husband Jordan are only in their second season growing flowers.
"And I feel like we've experienced it all now so we had extremely wet winter last year. Last winter was really wet before that we had 16 weeks of drought during our first summer," said Monroe.
"We're hoping to triple our production this next year so those are all big lessons for us," she said.
Despite the loss, they remain hopeful.
"Farming is very optimistic so we're ready to pull ourselves up and get ready for 2020 so that's just part of the risk that we take," said Monroe.
The farm will getting some new flowers in the ground in the coming weeks. Monroe believes some selections in town may now be limited due to the freeze.
