Valentine's Day for people who have lost someone significant can be a very difficult time. It must be an incredibly difficult vacation for Vanessa Bryant to get through.
The 37-year-old posted a photo of her late husband Kobe Bryant, whose arms were wrapped around her, and kissed her cheek as she smiled at the camera. Below the photo, the texts for Lauryn Hills "Tell Him" scroll past.
"On my eternal Valentine's Day, I love you so much," Vanessa captioned the post. "I miss you so much on your favorite vacation. Te amo per semper. "
The tribute also mentioned the couple's 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, who died last month with her father.
"Kisses to you and Gigi in heaven," added Vanessa in the caption. "Happy Valentine's Day, my babies. With all my love, your Boo-Boo."
Many people, including celebrities, offered support in the comments section. "I love you V! Your love will last forever, ”wrote Khloe Kardashian, while Gabrielle Union commented with five red-hearted emojis.
Kobe, Gianna, and seven other people were killed on January 26 when they took a helicopter to the Mamba Academy for basketball training in nearby Thousand Oaks. The plane crashed in Calabasas and killed everyone on board.
