We all remember it like it was yesterday: The day we lost our beloved, NBA legend, Kobe Bryant. Unfortunately, for his widowed wife, this devastating loss is that much more painful, something none of us could ever even fathom.

Which is why Vanessa Bryant just broke hearts everywhere with her inspiring wedding anniversary tribute to her late husband.

"My king, my heart, my best friend," the heart-broken widow shared on her Instagram page. On Saturday, April 18th, it would've been almost two decades of pure happiness with the love of her life. Only instead, it's a day now cemented with inexplicable darkness.

After her husband's tragic passing in January, this momentous date marks the first wedding anniversary Vanessa will be riding out alone.

"I miss you so much. I wish you were here to hold me in your arms," she continued. Unfortunately, the loss of a loved one is a pain like no other, and we can only send our thoughts and best wishes during these trying times.
