One of the best things that has happened in my life was meeting Kimi. I lived next door to her for 20 years. We watched over each other. The laughs, the tears, we shared. She was my mom away from home. She would sneak treats to my puppies through the fence 😊 and share feel good snacks with each other. We both cried when I moved to FL and leaving her was heart breaking. She gave me the little doll when I left and will cherish forever. I will always think of you Kimi and will see you again. So easy to ❤️
