“Today holds a special place in my heart as it would have been almost two decades of marriage together.”

Vanessa Bryant posted a photo on Instagram, along with a heartbreaking message. She remembers her ‘king,’ the late Lakers icon, Kobe Bryant.

“My king, my heart, my best friend. Happy 19th wedding anniversary, baby. I miss you so much. I wish you were here to hold me in your arms. I love you.”

It has been just three months, Kobe passed away in a helicopter crash along with their daughter, Gianna.

Earlier the day, Vanessa shared Gianna’s photo, and the caption goes :

” I’ so proud of you, Gigi. God, I miss you, baby. You deserved to live a long, healthy, and happy life. I wish I could hold you and tell you how proud I am of you. You’re the best baby girl. Mommy loves and misses you more than I could ever express.” Gianna was chosen to be WNBA’s youngest honorary draft pick.
