Unfortunately, I hadn't known Kim long before she gained her golden wings. But she was beautiful, inside and out. I know I can't say anything to make things easier, but I pray for the family. Such a beautiful soul that God needed back much too soon.

I remember driving Kim and Brittany to school when I worked at Talco. She was a sweet person. She was one of the first friends Brittany had when we moved to Bogata in 1997. For high pretty girl. Prayers and love to your family.

Loved this girl! She was my teacher's aide for 2 years when she was in high school!! Or maybe I should say I was her assistant for those 2 years!! Hahaha
If I had to leave the room, and as I coach I had to many times, I didn't have to worry about anything or anyone in my classroom!! Kim ran a tight ship and no one dare step out of line... Including me!🤓
She was an awesome young lady that grew into a great mother!
