"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," Lindstrom began. "My best friend, my baby, my love...truly my everything."

She ended, "Thank you for us. Thank you for Exodus. Thank you God for Earl Simmons... forever X." Exodus, 4, is DMX's only child with Lindstrom; the 50-year-old had 15 children in total.

This is the first time Lindstrom spoke out regarding DMX's death on April 9 from a heart attack. He spent a week on life support at White Plains Hospital in New York and never recovered.

Lindstrom memorialized her late fiance by getting a tattoo of his 2006 song "Dog Love" on her arm, which tattoo artist Krystal Kills unveiled shortly after DMX's death.

Fans of the rapper are also honoring X's legacy by sending his music to the top of the charts.
