Vanessa Bryant Shares Heartbreaking Letter Kobe Bryant Left Her Before His Death

Vanessa Bryant, 38 celebrated her birthday on Tuesday by opening a letter from her late husband, Kobe Bryant, who tragically passed away in a helicopter crash in California earlier this year.

In an Instagram post, Vanessa stated:

“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. ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” Vanessa captioned the post on her Instagram.

Last month, Vanessa Bryant has commemorated what would have been her and Kobe’s 19th wedding anniversary on April 18 and Gianna’s 14th birthday on May 1.
