M.O.M.S (Mothers of Murdered Sons/Daughters)
I just wanted to let the moms who aren't on facebook that we have lost a very dear sister mom. Last night Kim Lasater passed away she was Kaylin Mathews mother. It seems like just yesterday our paths crossed on this tragic journey we are all on when Kim came onto the moms site. Despite her loss she was crazy, always making videos for us moms, chatting til all hours in the chat room and always there for a sister mom in need of comfort. She came in with a group of us who seemed to enter one right after another and we always felt a special bond with Kim and had hoped one day we could all travel to meet with each other. Although that opportunity never came and we never did meet personally I feel in my heart as if she always lived right next door as I do with all my sister moms. Our hearts continue to break not only for our own losses but with the loss of Qwinton (Melinda's second son she has lost--Daniel previously) and now Kim. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers as we approach the dreaded holiday season without 2 more precious Angels in our lives. Laura...Lisa's Mom
Laura thanks for posting this I have been at a loss all day thinking of Kim sure doesn't seem that long ago we all met on this site. Kim could always make us laugh and we did have some good times in the chat room laughing and crying. Kim will be forever missed and always in our hearts.
Love to you all
Big Jim's Mom

My heart is saddened by all these tragic losses. My heart bleeds for Melinda, and Kim's family. I wish I had the words of comfort but I don't. But I know in my heart they are free of pain and now in the comfort of God's arms. RIP sweet angels, for you shall always be remembered and loved.

OMG I am so very sorry to hear this. I went on Find A Grave and saw someone posted on Kaylin's page that her mother is with her now, and it broke my heart. How sad! I came here wondering if someone knew about it, and, Laura did. (You are always here for everyone Laura) Thanks for posting this.
I used to talk to Kim on the phone, and even though she was new in her grief, she always talked with a laugh. At that time, I never laughed. She always put a smile on my face while we talked. She was a very kind woman. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.
For all the new MOMS here, I'm so sorry you had to find your way here, and become part of this club. Please be kind to yourself.
