"Our hearts go out to all the lives lost and the families impacted by this bad tragedy". In fact, the retired National Basketball Association player referenced his daughter as such when sending well wishes on Gianna's birthday last May.

"He was a hero and an icon to us all", Howard said, adding that it's been an emotional 24 hours for him and his family.

"She was extraordinary", Matt Mauser, Christina Mauser's husband, said in an interview Monday morning on the "Today" show. "We lost our attractive wife and mom today in a helicopter crash. Please respect our privacy", he wrote Sunday.
