The iconic bass guitarist of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Flea, has shared a touching photo of the unforgettable legend of LA Lakers, Kobe Bryant, with his daughter Gianna Bryant via his official Instagram page.

On Monday, an emotional memorial ceremony was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to pay tribute to Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash near California.

Hollywood stars, world-famous artists, NBA legends and players, and many others attended the ceremony. Those, who could not attend the memorial ceremony, shared their feelings via social media and once again sent their condolences to the Bryant family.

After the ceremony, Flea has shared an emotional photo of father and daughter on Instagram and penned down a heartbreaking open letter for them. Apparently, he somehow couldn’t forget the death of them.

Here’s what he wrote with this photo:

“The outpouring of love yesterday for Kobe, his beautiful little girl Gianna and the other beautiful people lost, was powerful. It’s tripped me out, how in the days after his death the quantity of people who texted me letting me know they were in tears, shocked and saddened.

This includes many friends who expressed dislike for Kobe while he was alive, for a variety of reasons. I’ve concluded that when Kobe played basketball, he was often in a place beyond thought, in the zone, lost in the moment, completely in the present, and fully in his spirit.

In those moments, we saw what it is to be enlightened. Like what a monk who sits in a Himalayan cave all his life seeks. And he did it time and time again, in front of all of us, on television.

Whether you liked him or not, we all yearn to be completely in the moment. It is a natural human thing, and our only possibility of true happiness, whether or not it is a conscious thought. We saw it, and we felt it. And it crossed through every human barrier. I loved him.”
