Thank you so much for beautifully sharing some of your memories of my Gigi with me and allowing me to share them here on my ig. My Gigi is INCREDIBLE and I truly appreciate your thoughtful letter.

Vanessa continued to reflect on the devastating loss, remarking that she still could not understand why the tragedy happened. Vanessa also admitted that the accident did not seem “real,” even after a year. She wrote:

“I will never understand why/how this tragedy could’ve happened to such beautiful, kind and amazing human beings. It still doesn’t seem real. Kobe, we did it right. Gigi, you still make mommy proud. I love you!”
