Kobe Bryant's wife, Vannesa marked their wedding anniversary almost three months after the demise of her husband and daughter Gianna.
Kobe and Gianna perished in a helicopter crash along with nine other people on January 26, in Los Angeles.
Vannessa made an emotional tribute to her late husband who won several MVP awards in his LA Lakers career on her social media handle.
“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,” Vanessa’s Instagram post read, with a fun picture taken with Kobe.
Vannessa posted two photos showing flowers with the description a few hours later: ”Anniversary flowers from my Kobe. Thank you @nataliabryant
#GiannaBryant # BiankaBryant #CapriBryant @jeffleatham @catmcdonnell7 @paugasol.”
The widow paid tributes to her late daughter Gianna who was posthumously honored at Friday’s Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) draft, alongside her basketball teammates Payton Chester and Alyssa Altobelli, who also died in the crash.
“I’m so proud of you, Gigi. God/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. @WNBA
"# 2 Gianna “Gigi” Bryant Youngest draft pick. My “mambacita” a.k.a. Wings,” the Instagram post reads.
Vanessa Bryant made available to the WNBA, an emotion-laden message for the draft broadcast, that a draft into women’s league “would have been a dream come true” for her daughter.
Meanwhile, it is quite unbelievable how some Ghanaians could just defy lockdown directives and do the contrary of protocols set in place to protect their very self from harm's way.

From the drone or aerial shot of the market, it was clear the traders and their customers were not practising social distancing in these dangerous times.
