Since I am not able to make it tomorrow for the service because of work, I wanted to send my sympathies to Kim's closest part of the family. Kim was a lot of fun and she will be missed. I remember the last memory of her laughing with me and my crazy sisters. I like to think of her from that day. It always gives me a smile. Kim was not afraid to be herself and that was the great thing about her. I will miss you cousin and rest in peace until we meet again one day. Sending everyone lots of hugs and love...

My deepest condolences to Kim's entire family and friends at this time of tragedy. I worked with Kim at Weis and also knew her from bowling. She was such a strong woman and continued to fight her battle with cancer till the very end. She will be deeply and sadly missed by all. RIP my dear friend. ❤💜

Kim fought a long battle with cancer determined to "beat" it. She was always positive and strong, even as she lost weight she was still willing to bowl, shop and to make others feel good. Her spirit and her wit kept you on your toes. Our friendship was short in comparison to some but I loved this strong willed lady. Kim will be missed but her spirit will never die. I'm sure she's in heaven decorating for one of her favorite holidays Christmas. God Bless her and keep her, and her loved ones!
