To my dearest friend Kim,

Girl.... you are going to be one missed lady. Your smile brightened every room you entwred. Even though there were times in our friendship over the years where we perhaps didn't see eye to eye, due to me being your fiancee's best friend, you have always been a good shoulder to cry on and willing to offer advice or just listen to me. I promise if there's ever anything I can do for Hayden or Judy, I will be there for your family at the drop of a dime.

Your life was a blessing, your memory will be treasured. You are loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure.

So very sad to hear. What a beautiful woman. What a beautiful life. Always a friendly smile. She will not be forgotten. My heart goes out to the Dove and Gates family

Dear Judy and family,

I'm incredibly sorry for your loss. I remember making friends with Kim when the grade 2/3 teacher put our desks together (which I'm sure she did on purpose). We had a lot of fun. I recall one sleepover when we wrote notes to each other and I've never forgotten her best message. She wrote, "If we weren't friends I would cry and cry and cry and cry and cry and cry...(full page)...until there was an ocean." As far as I'm concerned, we will never not be friends, even though at times life and death seem to separate us. It's my belief that we're all part of the same big thing; the ocean of us.

Sincere condolences,
Angela McNamara

The kindest friend, she would give the shirt off of her back if someone needed it. My condolences to Steve, the family and to Hayden.

Hayden, your mom loved you! When you start to miss her always know she is not very far away she is with you always in your heart and in your memories.
