Marty, John and Catherine,
My heart is breaking for all of your family at this difficult time. I so wish I was closer so that I just hold on to you a bit. I just got the news and the words seem to escape me at this moment, . What I want to say is....please take care of each other and just take one day at a time. Loosing not one, but two beautiful daughters just breaks my heart. You are the strongest couple/family I know. Please find peace in knowing that your beautiful daughter, Kimberly Ann, is finally at peace and is in a much better place right now. No doubt in my mind that God has already scooped her up in his loving arms. I guess one could say that she finally found her way home.
Peace and love be with us all. Remember now, I'm just down the road a bit, listening to the horses breathe, come see me in Ocala if you have a mind to get away.
All My Love,
Debbie Quigg Hoffman
Ocala, Florida

Kimberly was such an energetic child who grew up to be a beauty. Natalie was always so compassionate with whatever Kimberly was going through. She loved both her little sisters so very much. Ian was so concerned about his Granddaddy and Mims when we got the news and said he really liked Kimberly. We both send our love to John, Marty, and Catherine. It is hard to lose a daughter and sister and you all have lost two!
