Here’s her touching tribute:
“I am missing you more than ever
Feels like I’ve been holding my breath for 2 years
Reminding myself to breathe
I always imagined you here
Sitting in the emptiness
Trying to create sacred space from it
I am crying more than ever
I don’t fight the tears anymore they’re my normal now
I don’t fight the fear or the pain I just push through anyway
Connecting with you every way I know how
So much I want to say but I’ll leave it at this…
You are the bar. The example. The Truth.
Anyone that says otherwise don’t know they self and that type of energy never did concern us.
Anything you ever told me to do is being implemented. Anything you ever told me to leave alone has been cut off.
I respect you to the fullest and continue to dedicate my life to the mission you started until we meet again
What an amazing human what an immense Soul
I love you Ermias.”
