Funeral Expenses for Kim & Owen

It is with deep sadness to have to reach out on behalf of a family who is beyond devastated at the loss of there loved ones in such a senseless, horrific, and sudden tragedy. Kim Dunphey and her 7 year old son Owen were brutally murdered by an immediate family member Wednesday afternoon in their home in Lacey. Diane, John and Doug (Kim’s mother and 2 brothers) are beyond devastated and are struggling to deal with this loss. There is no explaining why or how something like this happens but as a community we can hopefully come together and raise money to help cover funeral expenses. While we can not take away the pain of their loss we can only hope to help relieve some of the financial burden .

Kim would have celebrated her 49th Birthday today. Her son Owen turned 7 on March 25th. Anyone who knew Kim knew her life revolved around her son. As the only grandchild/nephew in the family Owen was always showered with attention and love. Two beautiful souls with so much life to live taken from us way to soon.

As you can imagine the costs associated with having to bury two family members so suddenly is overwhelming. Any financial assistance will be extremely helpful as no funds have been put aside for such a tragedy.

Please keep this family in your prayers and thank you in advance for all your generosity and support.
