Vanessa Bryant wishes Kobe a happy 19th wedding anniversary on Instagram
“My king, my heart, my best friend. Happy 19th wedding anniversary. I miss you so much. I wish you were here to hold me in your arms. I love you,” she wrote.
Kobe and oldest daughter Gianna were among nine people killed in a January helicopter crash.
Gianna, along with her teammates Payton Chester and Alyssa Altobelli, who also perished in the crash, were honored during Friday’s WNBA draft as honorary picks.
Vannesa recorded a tearful message for the broadcast, saying Gianna getting drafted into the WNBA “would have been a dream come true for her.”
