CORONA DEL MAR, CA. (THECOUNT) — Kobe Bryant and his daughter were laid to rest at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona Del Mar, California, but if the family has anything to do with it, we may not know exactly where the burial plot lays.
On February 7, 2020, the father and daughter were buried in an private ceremony for friends and family members only.
According to the official website for Pacific View Memorial Park, their mission statement is to remind visitors of the beauty of life. The stunning and meticulously landscaped area is comprised of beautiful buildings, open courtyards, meticulous landscaping, and flowing fountains.
The grounds are located at, 3500 Pacific View Dr in Corona Del Mar, CA.
“As part of our commitment to all families, we guard their privacy and do not discuss specific matters with the media,” a spokesperson for Pacific View told The Sun. “However, we can confirm that a photo circulating on certain websites is not the final resting place of Kobe and Gianna Bryant. We ask that the public respect the privacy of the family whose loved one is interred at the pictured location.”
The area was designed, per the company, to express the joy of living and offer a place of beauty to honor a late loved one. Atop a low hill, this large cemetery overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
The cemetery also houses a Garden of Valor that pays tribute by recognizing and providing a final resting place to veterans of the military and public servants. They also honor their immediate family members. Several memorials honor the five branches of the military, as well as firefighters and police, reports Inquisitr.
The cemetery also works with the community by conducting an all-faith celebration of life candle lighting service. During this intimate service, families, and friends are encouraged to submit a picture of their loved one for a slide show. They then can light a candle as their loved one’s name is spoken. Families also have the opportunity to hang an ornament in honor of their loved one on a tree.
The two were reportedly buried in an unmarked grave at the memorial park to keep away unwanted attention from their final resting place. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case as a widely circulated photo that was alleged to be Kobe and Gianna’s final resting place belongs to another person and fans have been gathering there to pay their respects.
