Dear Leroy and Family,
I am so glad I was fortunate enough to see you and Kim five years ago after NOT seeing you for over forty years!! As we talked about when I saw you, and I told her, my memory of Kim was how great a mom and wife she was in spite of the "times". She always had unwavering loyalty, and commitment to you as her husband, she believed in you and her family. She was so strong!
As a teenager back then I admired and never have forgotten how she lived her values and the had the patience and fortitude to forgive. She "walked the talk" and as time has shown, was worth it all.
You are in my thoughts and I will never forget the memories.
Love, Deb Liefer

We love you and your whole family and will be praying for you in these coming days.

Kim had a ladys elephant party. She was a specail woman and we got to be good friends. We were under their ministry in Ortonville. Even got to see her in Ky. , when Bro. Demasellis and Kim visited the church we were a part of in Campton. Had supper together, just really enjoyed visiting with them both again. Our condolances to all the family, she ran the race and is with her Lord!
Love in Christ, Tom and Julie Fuller

Bro. LeRoy and family,
How blessed we all are to have known Kim- she was truly a woman who loved God and showed His love to all she came in contact with. I appreciated her wisdom and “family” advice. We loved her because she first loved each one of us- and that is the Christ like spirit she shared. Bro. LeRoy we love you- thank you for sharing Kim with us.
