According to Hollywood Life, the past few months since the tragic helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and his second daughter Gigi including seven other passengers has been difficult for the Bryant Family.

Hollywood life reports that Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant, on April 18 sadly remembered what would have been her 19th wedding anniversary to Kobe and, most recently, last Friday when she would have been celebrating her daughter's 14th birthday.

In remembering her daughter, Vanessa wrote an emotional tribute on her Instagram page. The message came with a photo of her wearing a red bracelet with Gigi's name on it.

In the caption, she encouraged her followers to wear red, which was one of her daughter's favorite colors. She also explained that the bracelet she was wearing was for sale to support the Mamba and Mambacita foundation.

Many celebrities have started to purchase the bracelets, and they also took to their social media pages to show them off in honor of Gigi.

Earlier last month, according to E Online, Vanessa had also reflected on the passing of her husband while celebrating Mamba Day, which honors her husband's final NBA game before his retirement in 2016.

The wife of the late Los Angeles' Lakers Basketball star remembered his wish to be present at every milestone. Unfortunately, that has not been the case. Vanessa and her three other daughters, including Natalia, have had to celebrate these milestones alone.
