Vanessa took to Instagram to share an emotional note from one of Gianna’s best friends.

“Today I received this sweet letter from one of Gianna’s best friends, Aubrey. I love you Aubz (as my Gigi would call you). 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.” The beginning of the caption read.


Later in the letter, Aubrey wrote, “There are times I get into a pit of despair thinking about her and what she could’ve accomplished had she had a couple more years. But recently I have been thinking about the mark she did leave on this earth. Her fights for equality in sports made the world reconsider their opinions. She along with Mr Bryant, set the wheels in motion.”

Concluding her note, Aubrey told Vanessa that she did it right when it came to raising Gianna.

“I am so, so blessed I got to have time with your angel of a daughter, and thank you for giving me that chance. I love you and am thinking of you as we remember and honour her life.”
