“Ermias was asleep one morning, and I was watching him. I used to watch him sleep. I wrote him a text when he was sleeping so when he woke up he would read it,” she said.

The message read, in part: “I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you, I feel safe when I am around you, protected. LIke a shield over me when you’re around. I am totally myself when I am around you… I don’t wear my cool mask anymore. You’ve made me into more of a woman. Been with me when I am sick, through all my fears … inspired me to reach higher. You’ve been my turn up and my church. I wouldn’t want to go through this journey with anyone but you.”

Lauren concluded her eulogy with this: “And to Ermias, the love of my life … You know what it is. Grief is the final act of love. My heart hears you. I feel you everywhere. I’m so grateful that I had you. I love you beyond this earth. And until we meet again … the marathon continues.”

After the service, Lauren debuted a new tattoo of Nipsey’s face she put on her arm.
