Eventually during the service his Wife Lauren London got up to speak about Nipsey, first reading a text message she sent him one morning while he was asleep next to her saying,
‘I’m in bed with you while you’re sleeping and I wanted to tell u something. ‘I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you. I feel safe around you. Protected. Like a shield over me when you’re around. I am totally myself with you (which is prob why I’m annoying) because I don’t wear a cool mask anymore lol. ‘You’ve made me into more of a woman. You’ve given me an opportunity to really love a man. ‘You’ve been with me while I’ve been sick. Through my fears. U have encouraged me, and inspired me to reach higher. ‘I’ve learned so much more about myself with you You’ve been my turn up and my church. I wouldn’t want to go thru this journey with anyone but you. I look up to you in a lot of ways and strive to educate myself more like you have."
Going on to speak on the person he was she said "Ive never felt this type of pain before but I know God is alive, his sole was majestic, the strongest man I've ever knew, going on to say Never was i prepared for anything like this so bare with me y'all". Bringing herself up to speak on the person he was she ended her speach saying "to everyone out there just know the Marathon continues"
