Mama Kay I am so sorry to hear of your tragic and violent passing, Lamia. I am also sad that the authorities and the media continue to misgender you. Trans women have it hard enough. I am a white, cisgender Midwestern mother. I am working to bring information and understanding about transgender issues to families so that ALL people can be respected, accepted and loved for who they are. Rest in peace, my dear. Rest in peace.

Rob Waters May you find peace, love, and acceptance in the next life that this world failed to offer you in this one. Your passing is felt by your friends, family, and strangers who never knew you but still feel the sting of loss. I hope the family of Lamia and her friends find comfort in this time of grief as we all mourn the loss of a sister.

Xander This is shameful and disrespectful to the woman Lamia truly was. Floyd was a character she was forced to play and what actor would want to be buried and remembered as a character instead of their true selves?

Diana Davis Lamia, So many people will now never get the opportunity to be touched by your beautiful soul, and the world will not be as wonderful as it could have been... It is clear from your (now) memorial Facebook page that your friends loved you so deeply, and the tragedy is that others won't get to know you. May your beauty live on in the memories those who knew and loved you share as they bid adieu!
