Once upon a time, I dated an amazing person named @laurenbedfordrussell
In the first few months of our relationship, I showed her a documentary, that had touched me for life.
It was called:
"Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement"
The film ended up having her in tears as well.
A few months after this and into our relationship, Lauren was diagnosed with MS like Thea was.
We went through a lot together and despite the fact that we are no longer partners, we're still great friends.
I will remember Edie for the time that she let me cry on her shoulder at a public event, bc I had felt like I had let my friend and partner down in the battle against MS and how I felt pathetic and helpless.
She was the most amazing inspiration and comfort all at the same time.
I will always remember her for being one hell of a stand up, badass lady.
You are the definition of a community builder and I will miss you.
RIP E 🌈❤️
