Today (May 1) would have been Gianna Bryant’s 14th birthday, and her mother Vanessa Bryant has taken to social media to wish her late daughter a happy birthday.
The post is yet another that shows how much Vanessa is grieving the loss of her husband, Kobe Bryant, and their teenage daughter, who were killed in a helicopter crash with seven others this past January.
“Happy 14th Birthday to my sweet baby girl, Gianna,” Vanessa Bryant wrote in a sweet tribute on Instagram. “Mommy loves you more than I can ever show you.”
“You are part of MY SOUL forever,” she continued. “I miss you so much everyday. I wish I could wake up and have you here with me. I miss your smile, your hugs and your giggles. I miss EVERYTHING about YOU, Gigi. I LOVE YOU so much!!!!!!!”
