  • Kim- I have been thinking a lot about what I want to say at your service Friday. I’m having a hard time finding the words. This was not supposed to happen this way. I thought for sure I would live at my moms house and you would live at your moms house after they passed and we would be in 2 rocking chairs laughing at our antics when we were younger. God has another plan for you my friend and I don’t understand or know why. John and I will look out for your mother, brother, and boys the best we can. Please know I will miss you and think of you always.

    Love Alainna

  • I am so sorry for your loss of your daughter and mother, Kim. It is hard enough to try to put into words the emotions you are dealing with right now. But know that our Creator did not intend for us to deal with death, actually, He hates death: he even views it as an enemy.(1 Corinthian 15:26) He has “a yearning” to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again-Job 14:14,15. And for the mean time“ He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds.”(Psalms 147:3). So trust that He can comfort you.

  • Dear Christopher and Ruth,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you both as well as Kimmy’s children. It’s been many years since I’ve seen Kimmy but all of my happy memories are of the little girl who followed us around all the time and laughed at everything we had to say! I know she is at peace and I wish that for all of you too. God Bless.


  • To sum up the entire life of someone in a few minutes is difficult. The memories we all have of Kim are gifts left behind. We all have memories immense and minor, memories we will treasure and ponder upon. Everyone is here because they have a connection with Kim, and each an affection for her.
    The simple things in life made her happy. Kim would tell jokes, which were typically not funny, but she would always laugh and this would typically include snorting and cackling which intern would make others laugh. Even though her jokes were typically not funny she still gained the end result of making others laugh. Her smile was intoxicating and uplifting. Kim saw the best in everyone. She was not judgmental or artificial. She would do anything in the world to help a friend and never ask for anything in return.

  • To my dear sister Ruth, this has been a difficult season in your life for you have lost so much. No parent should have to bury their children the sorrow can be overwhelming. Just hold on to the good memories and make them treasures. I remember the beautiful baby and child, Kim with the red hair and freckles and a smile on her face and laughter from her belly. As she grew she kept her sense of humor and was a bright girl and athletic. She made some good friends that lasted a life time. She was dedicated to these relationships and was loved by her peers. Her children have touched your life and love you. We all make choices every day that affect our future, some good and some bad. We can’t change the past but if we listen to God’s voice our choices today will lead us to a blessed future. May God comfort you at this time, and may you know the fullness of his love. I love you.

  • I will always remember you amazing laugh from when I first met you in middle school throughout all of high school. I remember how every summer we could call each other to see if we were in the same home room, even though we knew we would be. I am so sorry for your pain must have been deep. I wish your mother, brother and children peace at this time. There are no words. My prayers are with you.
