Vanessa Bryant finds ‘lost’ Kobe letter

 

The widow of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant received a special gift for her 38th birthday - a letter from her late husband.

Vanessa Bryant explained on social media that she had found the letter a day before her birthday, more than three months after Kobe and daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash in California.

Nine people died in the tragedy.

Vanessa said she waited a day to open the letter on her birthday - to give herself something special.

 

The envelope was labelled "To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi".

"It gave me something to look forward to today," Vanessa Bryant wrote in an Instagram caption.

"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."

In the past 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.

She had previously posted on Gianna's 14th birthday on May 1, "you are my soul forever."
