Hi Deeeeeeeee!!!!! Oh how I will miss those two simple words spoken with such a sweet, caring and inviting voice. You made me feel like you hadn't seen me in years every time we spoke even if it was in the same day. I will miss you more than words can ever say. You are by far one of the strongest women I know, I will miss our talks, I will miss your positive energy, your beautiful spirit no matter what you were going through, I will truly miss you my friend. I know God has other plans for you but I just wish I could have seen you one last time, so I could tell you in person just how much you meant to me. I am so sorry I didn't give you your flowers while you were alive. My mind still talks to you, I know how much you wanted to be here. My heart still looks for you, wishing I could wake up from this nightmare. But my soul knows you're at peace.

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, Rest well my friend, I'll see you when I get there.

Nina K,

This all still feels like a dream and it's hard to even imagine not seeing you on the holidays or at birthday party's at my sister Michelle's house. I love you very much and I'm so inspired by what an amazingly strong, independent woman you were. You were the epitome of the word "FIERCE". Rest peacefully, I love you

Kim,
I’m so glad to have reconnected prior to your transition. We prayed together before surgeries and chemo every week and I was inspired by your faith and confidence in God. You are healed now! I will NEVER forget you, your love and kindness will be with me forever.
Your friend,
LaTura

Kim, you were full of life. A smile that light up a room, always something to say, and not afraid to call anyone out LoL. And your competitive side, which I saw in action in volleyball at North. A force to be reckoned with when needed.
You took on the biggest and hardest fight of your life, taken so soon. You'lll be truly and greatly missed. 💔 RIP Kim

Kim has touched soo many lives and hearts. I am not surprised by all of the loving memories those around her have posted. I am not sure why God has chosen to take you this soon but only to know that you are up above looking over us as one of His angels now. Your love, friendship, & kindness will not be forgotten! Thank you for being so courageous! I love you! Rest in Paradise Kim. My prayers and thoughts go out to her family & friends.
