There's no doubting that each day is a struggle for Vanessa Bryant, the widow of the late Kobe Bryant, who tragically died in a helicopter crash in January. However, Saturday might be the most difficult to date.

Bryant had a touching Instagram post to celebrate their 19th wedding anniversary.

"My king, my heart, my best friend. Happy 19th wedding anniversary. I miss you so much. I wish you were here to hold me in your arms. I love you," read Bryant's gutting caption.

The courage and strength Bryant continues to showcase during an impossibly difficult time is so inspiring, and we hope that this throwback photo of her and Kobe as a young couple helps produce some smiles on the anniversary of what is supposed to be an unforgettable memory.

The last 24 hours have been incredibly emotional for Bryant. On Friday night, her daughter Gianna, and two of her teammates -- Payton Chester and Alyssa Altobelli -- who also died in the accident, were named honorary selections at the WNBA Draft.

In another display of her Mamba Mentality, Bryant took the time to send a heartfelt "thank you" to the WNBA for its amazing gesture.

Like her late husband, Bryant's fortitude is second to none and continues to be an inspiration to millions across the globe.
