“The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi,” Kobe labeled his one last letter to Vanessa before his tragic helicopter crash, where he died along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
The rest of the Bryant family tries hard not to look miserable in public, but it is not easy to lose loved ones. Vanessa lost a husband and a daughter but is grateful to spend all her time with her three more children.
“Yesterday I found an envelope labeled To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi,” she started her caption, and added a red heart emoji.
“I waited to open one more letter on my birthday. It gave me something to look forward to today,” Vanessa added.
“The irony is that Kobe had a photo of me drawn with an Angel holding me up by an artist on the cover. Missing the Love of my Life and my sweet little Mamacita- my fellow Taurus,” the 38-year-old wrote.
In the end, she shared her birthday wish with her fans: “Grateful to wake up to my three sweet girls today. Wish we were all together. ”
