I will forever remember Mr. Kilmer as a very loving and dedicated husband, father, grandfather and church door greeter! He always had a huge smile on his face! The entire Kilmer family means so much to me and he definitely leaves behind a legacy and perfect example of a true Christian! He will be greatly missed by all, but I can only imagine the great reunion he is having in Heaven!
