Kobe Bryant Tribute: Vanessa Bryant Remembers Kobe In Touching IG Post

Vanessa Bryant

Vanessa Bryant has always admired Kobe Bryant's dedication to his craft and for being a great father to their kids.

In her recent Instagram post, it showed how she is forever thankful for her "dreamer."

The mom-of-four shared a heartfelt message written by the late NBA superstar in his 2019 sports fiction book "Epoca the Tree of Ecrof: Island of the Gods," which was released in December -- just a month before his untimely and tragic death on January 26.


"Always learning from the best. My Boo-Boo, my Dreamer," Vanessa captioned as she included a photo of the book's cover.

The book was created by the former Lakers icon and was written by Ivy Claire. The literature piece also included dedication for his wife that reads, "For Vanessa. Thank you for always being the Realist to my Dreamer."

After his retirement in 2016, the Black Mamba formed Granity Studios -- an award-winning multimedia company that focuses on creating and producing inspiring youth-oriented sports-themed contents.

The five-time NBA champion described his project as a way to connect with the youth through sports and literature.

"For us, for the studio, it is trying to connect important messages that we want our youth to get to understand, to grow with, and to evolve with," Bryant told Forbes at the time. "Then we start looking at sports and there is a connection with the story and the sport itself."

Moreover, Bryant also mentioned how he was "fortunate" enough to find something that he was interested to do after retiring.

"I was fortunate to retire from the game and find something I love to do and that is the art of storytelling. There is nothing like having a blank page and outlining a story, a world, a character. What is it going to look like, how does that come together? There is nothing more fun to me than doing this," the NBA Hall of Famer added.

Aside from this, her eldest daughter also gifted her a charcuterie board filled with crackers, cheese, strawberries, grapes and nuts.
