It is without no doubt this fantastic, energetic, loving individual will be truly missed by her fishing buddies.
In 1996, Ron (my husband) and I invited Kimie and others to their first Fishing Derby at Walker Lake, Walker, NV. Kimie was so excited and prepared to win with her guaranteed "Banjo" fishing lure kit. Despite Kimie not catching a fish she carried a very special name amongst all anglers at the awards ceremonies "Net Lady" and tears of joy, to boot.
Rest in peace, Missy!

Kimie was my bestie,my person. We meet when we were 19years old. We would get all dolled up and hit the town. We were on stage at Rockers in Phx az with poison before they became big. We had so many good times I can’t even count. She was such a fun loving person and if you knew her you know what I’m talking about. I can’t believe she is gone. This does not seem real. She called me Army Onion because my name was Amy Runyan and I hated it but I would give anything if I could here her say that again. That’s how much I miss her. See you on the other side my friend save me a seat. Until we meet again. Love your Friend Army Onion!!!!!

Farewell my friend. I'll cherish our many memories of all our fun and growing up at saltsburg high. We had a blast. I'm sorry you left so soon.

So many memories!!! I will always hear the "clicking" of your nails and your laugh. When it's time to adopt a new Kitty, I will be looking for one with long nails, as you said that you wanted to come back in your next life as one of my Kitties.

I was devastated when I heard that Kimmie passed away. Although it has been a few years since I saw her she was the same Kimmie that I remember from growing up. The trouble we would get into and the fun we had. One of my biggest memories is that Kim loved listening to Journey every night when she went to sleep. She was a very important part of my life back when I was younger and I will always picture her smiling and holding her hand towards her face and singing "When the lights go down in the City". She will be missed very much.
