Vanessa Bryant pays Valentine’s Day tribute to Kobe
VANESSA Bryant has posted a heartfelt Valentine's Day tribute to her late husband, Kobe Bryant.
The video show an image of Kobe kissing Vanessa on the cheek as Lauryn Hill's Tell Him played over the top with the lyrics scrolling underneath.
"To my forever Valentine, I love you so much. Missing you so much on your favorite holiday. Te amo per sempre. Kisses to you and Gigi in heaven. Happy Valentine's Day, my babies. With all my love, your boo-boo," Vanessa captioned the video.
Friends of Vanessa were quick to shower the moving tribute with plenty of love with Khloe Kardashian posting: "I love you V! Your love will last forever and always".
Former WNBA superstar Swin Cash replied: "A forever love V! Sending you love & light".
Kobe, Gianna and seven others were killed when the helicopter they were travelling in crashed into a hillside in Calabasas, Califoria on January 27.
Vanessa has continued to post moving tributes to her husband and daughter.

I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.
On Saturday it was announced Kobe is a finalist to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
