On Tuesday (March 31), the 35-year-old actress took to Instagram to honor Nip with an emotional, heartfelt post that spoke of her continued grief as well as her gained strength.
"Time is deceptive," Lauren began. "It’s been a year since you transitioned. The pain is as heavy today as it was a year ago. God knows I would give anything to see you again. I didn’t think I was going to survive a second of any of this. Prayers have kept me together. The kids keep me going and Gods Grace and Mercy have carried me this far."
She continued: "As today makes a year I stand strong because of you. Because I know you wouldn’t have it any other way. Because I recall every late night conversation we had about resilience and fear. Because you were my greatest teacher and because you are still with us, in spirit. With every breath i take I honor you. I carry this pain with purpose. I promise I will make you proud. I promise to apply everything you taught me In life and in death Ermias Asghedom. There will never be another. Until we are together again.... I love you beyond human understanding ( but you know that already)🏁."
Nipsey, born Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down outside of his Los Angeles clothing store on March 31, 2019. He was 33.
The rapper and activist is survived by his 11-year-old daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship, and his now 3-year-old son, Kross, whom he shares with Lauren.
