Vanessa Bryant Pays Tribute to Her Daughter Gigi and Husband Kobe 10 Days After the Crash

As always our thoughts and prayers are with the Bryant family as they go through the unimaginable

We can only imagine the terrible pain and horror that Vanessa Bryant and her girls are going through. Its hard enough to lose your husband — but parents aren’t supposed to burry their children. As always our thoughts and prayers are with the Bryant family as they go through the unimaginable.

After being killed alongside seven others, the NBA star left behind his wife and three other daughters. Ten days after the passing of Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna, Vanessa Bryant has paid tribute to her loved ones on Instagram.

“Miss you so much,” Vanessa captioned an image of the retired LA Laker player smiling in a sweater for his Mamba Academy.

Labeling him “handsome,” “sweet,” “funny,” “silly” and “loving husband” in her various hashtags, Vanessa revealed the nicknames Kobe had for her.

She also paid tribute to her daughter Gigi, 13, sharing a snap which appears to be of tributes on a basketball court and writing: “My Gianna. God I miss you. I’ve been so lucky to have woken up to see your gorgeous face and amazing smile for 13 years. Wish it would’ve been until my last breath. Mommy loves you to the moon and back. Infinity plus 1. #2 #Mambacita #GigiBryant.”

Vanessa posted on Instagram saying “Miss you saying, “Bonjourno principessa/reina.”  As it turns out, Kobe grew up in Italy where his professional basketball player father Joe Bryant lived.
