Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant has broken her silence a number of times since then, and has now made a public appearance in their honor.

She got an incredible round of applause and a standing ovation of support.

Her speech had a ton of anecdotes about Kobe and Gianna, and she had to hold back tears as she tried to remain strong in front of the huge crowd.

Our hearts go out to her at this difficult time.
