|Let the memory of Lashawn be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Lashawn Thomas-Lolis, 42, born on February 11, 1972 and passed away on September 9, 2014. We will remember her forever.
"I am now learning of your passing and my heart is so heavy with pain. We met as children in NC and were like sisters (Kooda and Nay) for many years into adulthood.. There are so many memories.... thank you for them all. You were always loved."
"Happy birthday friend. You are truly missed."
What can I say right now? Well, I draw comfort in the fact that what started off as a casual interaction between two MEPCOM employees blossomed into a great friendship. You came by my desk to say “hello” and “how are you”. I came by your desk to do the same. You showed genuine concern for me when I had my ‘moments’. I did the same for you when you had yours. But I must go beyond those comparisons to state just what you meant to me.
You encouraged me when I was having a rough time. You steered my mind back in the right direction and showed me the reasons why I needed to continue to “be myself.” Because of you I got my confidence back to where it used to be. You performed brilliantly at my retirement ceremony – at least according to the family who couldn’t stop talking about it for weeks! And you were really proud of me on my retirement - that’s how we Airmen do. I still have the cards and letter you gave me for my special day. You also showed great concern for my mother and her issues. She appreciated that, as did I – more than you will ever know. It wasn’t just the kindness and devotion you showed me. It was the pride you had about your children. You told me that they were your life. And the pride you had in your daughter when she went to DC, well that was special. You were passionate about young people’s education. One can always tell a person’s heart just by looking at the facial expressions.
I could go on and on about other stuff but then that could take all day. I’ll end it by saying that I will always be grateful to God for my having known you, and I will be eternally grateful for the fun moments. There is the statement that people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. You my dear managed all three. You came into my life for a reason, and your lifespan was but for a season. But I will love you for a lifetime.
Rest well my friend, until we meet again.
"I miss you, Sunshine. Your light shown bright and you touched a lot of people, even though you probably didn't realize it. We are better pwople because you cared about us. I love you.
"Words cannot express how heavy my heart is that you are no longer with us. Praying peace and eternal rest for your soul my beautiful sister. Thank you for being an amazing friend...missing you dearly."
"You will forever be in my heart not just as my cousin but as my sister. I'll miss your calls but most of all your beautiful smile. Sleep angel"
"May you find peace in the arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I will miss you dearly."
"Rest in peace Ms. Lolis, you are very much missed!"
"I will miss your lil fast-talking self!"
"SIP my 'round the way girl!! <3 You For the Rest of My Life!!!"
