Aunt Kim,
What can you say about her,she was kind,sweet,caring,loved uncle Randy and her family,and especially her pets.She was always there if I needed to talk, or scream for that matter.She use to make time for me she would come to whever I was living and spend time with me,We did so many things,She made me feel useful, like she wanted me around.I loved taking care of her when she had her back surgery, it made me feel like I was taking care of my mom, she was there when I had my nervous breakdown a few yrs ago.I don't know how I'm going to live without her we use to talk 4 or 5 times a day and when we said good night every night it was GN SD LU TTUT,but tomorrow won't come,and I'll find a way to go on.Love You Aunt Kim ,Till we meet again.

Kim has always had a beautiful soul. This world is a dimmer place without the sunshine of her smile. She always called me sissy every time she saw me. I regret terribly that I never reconnected with her. My heartfelt prayers will always be for Randy and all those left without her.

My aunt was amazing, the most loving person you would ever meet, its still so strange to say was because of how much love she gave us all, it was like she has cubbys in her heart for all of us, though she never had children of her own, she always told all of her nieces and nephews they were her children. For me growing up with her as my mother figure was so special, I knew anytime I need to talk, she was there, over the years, I cried, vented, and ranted about anything and she would listen, and then when I was done she would ask if I felt better after talking about it. Lol. Her since of humor was contagious, she was quick whitted with come backs and loved to have fun and would be the one to turn our frowns upside down. Her silly side was my favorite, we would just drive around without a clue where we would end up and while she was driving we would play what I called bumper sticker, any and every car that had bumper stickers, and it had to be a rectangle sticker not the other bumper stickers and try to be the first one to say bumper sticker!! We would laugh until we had tears in our eyes and our faces hurt from laughing so hard. There are alot of memories of her that I love but the one we always talked about and laughed the hardest was when her, my uncle and myself went to Myrtle Beach, SC. It was the summer before I started middle school, we got to the hotel in the afternoon and the three of us went walking on the beach and whole we were walking we came across a huge hole in the sand, after walking for a good bit, we went back to the hotel and the next day we went to the beach again, set up on the sand and I went swimming, the ocean started to pull me out alittle to far and she and uncle randy called me to come back toward them to not go out to far, so I started running lol, mistake! Lol, I got half way to were we set up and fell in that same hole..lol and come to find out my uncle recorded the whole thing 😆.
