It was an emotional night at the Harbor Day School in Newport Beach as Gianna Bryant’s basketball jersey was retired.

Gianna, her father Kobe Bryant, and seven others died when the helicopter they were flying in crashed in Calabasas, California, last month.

“My Gigi. I love you! I miss you,” Gianna’s mother, Vanessa Bryant, wrote in one of her posts about the ceremony. “You’ve taught us all that no act of kindness is ever too small.”

One of the school’s basketball coaches, Joshua Parks, said Gianna was one of the fiercest competitors he’d ever seen.
