Vanessa turned 38 years old on Tuesday, and shared on Instagram that she recently found a letter from the NBA legend that she's never read before. Kobe and their 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crashin Calabasas, California, in January alongside seven other victims.
Yesterday I found an envelope labeled To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi ❤️I waited to open one more letter on my birthday. It gave me something to look forward to today.❤️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. Grateful to wake up to my 3 sweet girls today. Wish we were all together. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️#MyBirthdayWish
It has been nearly 4 months since the tragic accident and to this day it seems like only yesterday.
