Kim and I raised our daughters together since grade school. We planned parties, made costumes, hosted Halloween events, babysat for each other, shared love and support during all of life’s ups and downs. Kim never faltered on doing the right thing, standing firm and fighting for her family. She always brought a great attitude and can-do spirit, I never heard a complaint or argument. She had a gentle heart and easy smile and saw the best in every situation. She invited us into her family and we have been friends ever since. I love her, miss her and cherish our memories together. Sweet Kim, I will see you again. Until then, I will remember your forever smile, kindness and fun spirit. And all the laughter we shared!! You always made me laugh and whenever I called to cheer you up, you always cheered me up more with your amazing gentleness and caring.
❤️❤️❤️ and 🌺🌺🌺!!
