The world is still processing the sudden and tragic loss of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna. The two were killed in a helicoptor crash on Sunday, leaving Bryant's wife to care for their surviving three children.

The harrowing accident was reflected in a more somber mood at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, which took place hours after Bryant's death at Staples Center, where the gold-metal athlete played out an illustrious career, including five NBA Championships, two NBA Finals MVPs and a stunning 60 points in a single game.

He was more than a player to the Los Angeles community. He was an inspiration and a reminder of how much can be achieved through dedication, strength, posititivity and belief in oneself. The musical community honored Bryant throughout the Grammy Awards, and he is remembered lovingly by the electronic dance community online.

Here are some of the electronic music community's heartfelt messages to a man whose impact won't soon be forgotten.
