Bryant’s longtime Lakers teammate Pau Gasol and his wife Catherine McDonnell sent Vanessa a massive flower arrangement to celebrate the anniversary.

Kobe and the couple’s daughter Gigi died in 2020 during a helicopter crash in California.

Vanessa recently spoke with PEOPLE Magazine about the difficulty of dealing with such a heartbreaking loss.

“This pain is unimaginable [but] you just have to get up and push forward,” said Bryant. “Lying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again. But getting out of bed and pushing forward is going to make the day better for my girls and for me. So that’s what I do.”
