Former Los Angeles Lakers’ player, Pau Gasol, shared an emotional tribute on Instagram on Tuesday to pay his respect to his late teammate, Kobe Bryant, and his late daughter, Gianna, on the first anniversary of their deaths.
On Tuesday, the 40-year-old former basketball player, Pau Gasol, posted an Instagram post in her late friend’s honor, one year after Kobe’s death in a Jan.26 helicopter crash that also killed his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
In his emotional Instagram post, Gasol shared a series of throwback photos of Kobe with himself and his daughter Gianna.
Pau penned down a touching letter to pay tribute to Kobe and his daughter Gianna in the caption.
I miss you, Hermano… not a day goes by that you are not present in what I do. Your spirit, your drive, your ambition, your love… continues to shine in my life and in many others. Photos, videos, very special moments keep being shared by countless people that have admired you and loved you in their own way, reminding me how incredibly lucky I have been to share some of those moments with you.
I hope you and Gigi are smiling down seeing how strong, sweet and amazing your girls are… they are growing so fast brother.
I wish you could’ve met our little Elisabet Gianna. We will make sure she knows where her middle name comes from… how extraordinary, loving, and inspiring her cousin Gigi and her uncle Kobe were.
Today, we honor and celebrate both of you, you have left us with so much…, but even if it isn’t how we would like things to be, you are, and always will be, in our hearts.
