"One day, you're in the moment laughing and the next day you don't feel like being alive. I want to say this to people struggling with grief and heartbreaking loss. Find your reason to live. I know it's hard. I look at my daughters and I try to push through that feeling for them. Death is guaranteed but living the rest of the day isn't. Find your reason."


Beckham was good friends with Bryant. Shortly after his death, Beckham, known for his time at Machester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy, wrote shared an emotional tribute to Bryant on Instagram. "This was one special athlete, husband, father and friend," Beckham wrote. "Having to write these words is hard enough, but also knowing we have lost an amazing human being and his beautiful and talented daughter Gianna is heartbreaking. The commitment Kobe showed to his sport was inspiring, to go through the pain and to finish a game off like only he could inspired me to try to be better."
