The pain from Los Angeles Lakers icon Kobe Bryant's sudden death is still fresh for many, but none more so than his widowed wife, Vanessa. She has had to navigate the last few weeks without her second half, something that's downright unimaginable.

And on Valentine's Day, she made an absolutely heartbreaking post on Instagram expressing her love for Kobe and her daughter, Gianna, as well as how much she misses them on a day that's meant to celebrate love.

"To my forever Valentine, I love you so much," she said in a post featuring her and Kobe. "Missing you so much on your favorite holiday. Te amo per sempre. Kisses to you and Gigi in heaven."

The pain she's going through is unimaginable. On a day where she'd usually celebrate the love of her family, she instead doesn't even get to be with them, which is tragic and downright unfair.

But love is something that transcends death. It lives forever.

As long as she has love in her heart, the memories of both Kobe and Gianna will continue on.
