RIP 4 years....

Kimberly Rose Mallatt
October 21, 1975 - August 25, 2007

I can't believe it has already been four years since my sister was killed.

Four years ago today a horrible man took it upon himself to end my sister's life.

Most of my life my sister's and I didn't have a good relationship. Maybe it was age. Maybe it was that we had different mothers (and they didn't like mine). Who knows? Things were finally starting to get better with my sister Kim. While she was on the wagon, things were improving so dramatically. Then poof... someone snuffed her life out. The man that killed my sister is still at large. The Wichita PD did a horrible... BEYOND horrible job handling her case. It's difficult to comprehend that this murder is still at large. He's still out walking around enjoying his life, doing whatever he wants while an entire family greives for the loss of a sister, daughter, and now, aunt. It's sad that Kimani will never know his aunt Kimmie. It's sad that my children will never know her either. It's sad that she never got to have children of her own or live out the rest of her life.

Really and truly... Time does not heal all wounds; it just teaches us to deal with the pain.

Kim when she was little.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your sis! :(

  2. You're right, time does not heal all wounds & it never gets easier. This year will be 4 years that my best friend passed away. I'm so sorry for your loss & I know she's watching down on you all. She'll get to see all her nieces & nephews. :) That's what I like to think anyways.

  3. I can't say I completely understand how you feel because the circumstances surrounding her death are different, but I also lost a sister very suddenly and there are very few days that I don't think of her or think of what she's missing out on. I also agree that time doesn't erase the pain, it just makes it a little easier to work with. Sending hugs and happy thoughts your way. Also, the bottom picture is awesome!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
