Her beloved 2 and 24.
Gianna wore the number 2 jersey for her team, and Kobe will forever be known as number 24 of the Lakers. "There is no #24 without #2. ❤️#GirlDaddy #DaddysGirl #MyBabies ❤️❤️ #OurAngels #KobeandGigi," she wrote in the caption she included with this photo.

Gianna's school remembered her in a memorial.
This image is from a memorial for Gianna at the school she attended. Vanessa wrote: "My Gianna. God I miss you. I’ve been so lucky to have woken up to see your gorgeous face and amazing smile for 13 years. Wish it would’ve been until my last breath. Mommy loves you to the moon and back. Infinity plus 1."
