Vanessa Bryant on Thursday paid tribute to daughter Gigi after Gigi's high school retired her No. 2.

Gigi and her father, Kobe Bryant, were two of nine people killed in a helicopter accident on Jan. 26.

"My Gigi. I love you! I miss you. You’ve taught us all that no act of kindness is ever too small. Mommy is still and will ALWAYS be so proud of you mamacita," Vanessa wrote on Instagram.

Gigi was nicknamed "Mambacita", after the "Black Mamba", Kobe's popular moniker.
