Vanessa Bryant is still grieving after losing both husband Kobe Bryant and daughter, Gianna Bryant, in a helicopter crash last month.

This week, Vanessa took to Instagram to post a touching tribute to Gianna, who was just 13 years old at the time of her death.

"I've been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone," the post began.

"I can't process both at the same time. It's like I'm trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn't being able to have that opportunity?! I'm so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters," Vanessa continued in the post, which also features a video of Gianna playing basketball.

"Mad I'm not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I'm here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I'm feeling is normal. It's part of the grieving process," she concludes. "I just wanted to share in case there's anyone out there that's experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all."

Our heart goes out to Vanessa and her family.
