There will never be another friend like you. I could tell you anything. We have laughed together celebrated together and cried together. We've been sane and we've been crazy together. You taught me all about baking and given me countless recipes. I will miss your hamburger soup and cornbread. My life is better because you were apart of it I will look forward to seeing you again and hearing all about seeing Jesus and your reunion with your mom.
About your new body filled with life and restored with no pain or sadness Leave a light on for me...and have that soup ready girl. Forever my friend, I love you Kim
