Kiss frontman Paul Stanley is in mourning following the death of his mother.

Eva Eisen passed away on Saturday (29Sep12) at the age off 88.

The vocalist says, "My mother found so much pleasure and fulfilment in all the various types of music that she so loved. It was through her that I, too, found that same passion. She lived long enough to see, enjoy and love an extended family that included her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

"She found numerous ways to contribute to her community and was appreciated and loved by those who knew her. My mum was the matriarch of our family and words cannot express our loss."

And Stanley's bandmates have since reached out to their pal to send their condolences - a statement from the Heaven's On Fire hitmakers reads, "From the earliest days of Kiss until recently, Eva was always seen by fans at New York-area shows. We send our deepest sympathies to Paul and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you."
