The passing of Kobe Bryant and his young teen daughter, Gianna, has shocked the nation.  Everyone grieves in their own way and Owensboro, Kentucky, artist Aaron Kizer chose to paint him.

Here is what Aaron had to say:

My heart breaks as a parent thinking of all his wife and children are going and will continue to go through.

Aaron Kizer

Aaron's work is absolutely breathtaking and he captures Kobe in the perfect and most respectable way as the father he was and will always be.

Many prayers for his family.  I know I'll never meet them but if I was his wife knowing I had a nation of people lifting my name in prayer would make all the difference.

Thank you Aaron for your talents.
