His fiancée Desiree Lindstrom spoke out for the first time since his passing. She write via Instagram, “the first night we met and you held me close. I knew I would never let go. I was lost in you and nothing else mattered. My best friend, my baby, my love…truly my everything. Thank you for us. Thank you for Exodus. Thank you God for Earl Simmons…forever X.”
We previously reported that Lindstrom got a tattoo in honor of X. Above her “X” tattoo, Lindstrom also has the words “Dog Love.” The tatt was reportedly completed by Black Ink Crew New York‘s Krystal Kills who shared a touching message about her work. “I feel honored to be able to do this memorial but also saddened,” wrote Krystal.
The message continues, “your light was unmatchable. @desi123love I pray you find your way through these dark times, and remember the love you had for each other will forever be untethered. I’m glad I got to witness it. The world lost an icon but also a great father. Praying for your family. REST IN POWER DMX. Thanks for inspiring us, and giving Yonkers a voice. You moved the world and left your mark. The city misses you..”
May he continue to rest peacefully.
