RIP Kobe Bryant. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. Yes, he is a legend in basketball. But greater than that he leaves a legacy as a wonderful husband, loving father, and a man who used his fame to serve causes greater than his own.

You can work decades being the best, building your empire, and just like that – it’s over. We spend much of our lives working and preparing for the future and a “someday” that sadly isn’t always guaranteed. Live and love like nothing beyond this very moment is a given. #RIPKobe
