Four months after his shocking death, Kobe Bryant’s widow Vanessa discovered a letter from the late Lakers legend.

On Tuesday, Vanessa revealed on Instagram, “Yesterday I found an envelope labeled To: The Love of my Life. From, Tu Papi ❤️I waited to open one more letter on my birthday. It gave me something to look forward to today."

“❤️Missing the Love of my Life and my sweet little Mamacita- my fellow Taurus,” Vanessa continued. “Grateful to wake up to my 3 sweet girls today. Wish we were all together. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️."

Vanessa also shared a photo of the envelope.

Vanessa’s 38th birthday comes just days after the birthday of their daughter Gianna, who also perished in the helicopter crash that took nine lives.

Last week, Vanessa honored Gianna on what would have been her 14th birthday, posting a pic and writing on Instagram, "Happy 14th Birthday to my sweet baby girl, Gianna. Mommy loves you more than I can ever show you. You are part of MY SOUL forever. 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!!!!!!! ❤️🎉🎂🎉❤️."

In another post, Vanessa explained how people can honor Gianna on her birthday. She wrote on Instagram, "Gianna loved to wear a red bow in all of her school pictures. Red means love and life. To commemorate Gigi’s birthday today, please consider wearing red, caption an act of kindness or show how you will play Gigi’s way since she always gave everything she did her all and led with kindness. ❤️Please use the hashtag #PlayGigisWay ❤️Thank you. 5-1-06 Mambacita."

In February, Vanessa poured her heart out while remembering Kobe and Gianna at their public memorial in Los Angeles.
