I met Kim thru my co-massage student Jim. Kim was the nicest person (Jim found a pearl in her). I loved seeing pics of her gardens, She will be with us all whenever we see her beautiful flowers! Lots of love and enveloping energy your way, Jim. 💕

Hoa was a very dear friend of mine for many years. Although we only kept in touch occasionally after her husband's mother passed away. The family moved to Texas several years ago, from Ohio, but came back to spend time with his mother, so we always managed to get together, but it's been a few years since I've seen her. I will greatly miss those occasional connections. She was a very hard worker, and a very good cook...loved her Vietnamese dishes. So no surprise that she loves gardening. God Speed Dear Friend!

Thank you Hoa for always being so loving and kind to Steve and I. Even though we have not seen you lately you have always been in our heart and you are very special to us. You were small in body but your heart and soul was a giant. We love you and we will see you on the other side. Steve and Jan

Kim will always have a special place in my heart...I will always remember her infectious smile and could never understand how she never had a wrinkle on her face! But mostly her inner beauty and Being such a giving person. She was always giving me little sprigs of her beautiful plants and I especially cherish the last one she gave me which was a tiny sucker root from her rose of Sharon. There will never be another Kim! But I can’t be selfish...God wanted her more! I will always love her and remember our time together on earth.
