She was a great mom. Always took us to every swim-meet, volleyball game, t-ball, football, basketball, martial arts or any sports event and volunteered at our school just so she could be close to us.... Bought all of our clothes, cleaned our rooms, did our laundry, cooked dinner every night, prayed for her children everyday, and made us go to church on Sundays, even when we didn’t want to.
She was an amazing woman, she was a fighter, a motivator, she was independent, intelligent, excelled at everything, taught us how to be humble and rule the world. She told us the sky was the limit and we could do anything we set our minds too.
She loved my dad more then words can express and he loved her more then life itself. She always bragged about him & couldn’t wait to tell me everything he had done for her. She would remind me daily that my dad was taking care of her above and beyond the call of duty, just as Pop had done for Momawl. They went everywhere together, he never missed one doctors appointment, he wouldn’t leave her side, she didn’t fight alone, my dad fought with her.... In her eyes, he was perfect, he was her soul mate and they were a match made from heaven.
Ben was her oldest child, they shared a special bond that a mother can only have with her first born child. She loved to brag about how smart he is.... She always said he was such a great kid to raise because he never talked back to her or gave her any trouble. In her eyes, he was the perfect son.
Alec was her baby boy and though she was so sad to see her last baby fly from the nest, she was so proud about his military enrollment and his decision to serve our country.... In her eyes, he was the perfect baby boy.
I, her middle child, her only girl, her baby doll & the one she loved to dress up in bows a top my head with itchy lace socks and fluffy ripple dresses.... was her Princess and she my Queen....
Now she will forever be our Angel... In my eyes, she was PERFECT!!!!
We love you momma....

Kim was remarkable. She was a caregiver at heart, always taking care of people. She actually took care of my mother and my sons (while at St Johns preschool). She was devoted to Ed and her kids. I’m so sorry she has left us, but she is at rest. Blessings to the family as they grieve.
