LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Vanessa Bryant delivered a loving and solemn Valentine's Day message to her late husband Kobe Bryant on social media.

"To my forever Valentine, I love you so much," Bryant wrote to her 12.2 million Instagram followers. "Missing you so much on your favorite holiday. Te amo per sempre. Kisses to you and Gigi in heaven. Happy Valentine's Day, my babies. With all my love, your boo-boo."



The heartfelt message was accompanied by a photo of the couple embracing, featuring audio from Lauryn Hill's "Tell Him."
