I have been praying for Kim ever since I saw her name listed in the Parish Bulletin of St. Cecilia's Church. I tried to get more information from the Parish, but the secretary did not know what hospital Kim was in. I had taught Kim during her High School days, and she made a deep impression on me. I join you in grieving her loss. Sister Anne Schenck, csj

I just got the news and I would go to the funeral but I don't know how appropriate that would be. To my dear Kim's friends and family I was a client of hers. Kim saved my life several years ago helping me understand why life happens the way it does . Kim will always be my angle it's important to me that her close family understands the impact this women has had on my life. In a time where I couldn't feel more hopeless Kim gave me hope . I am devastated my this news and all I want to do is call Kim and let her know but sweet Kim is gone now. The world needed this beautiful soul... I needed this beautiful soul. The last time I saw Kim I was walking out of her office I took a big deep breath in and exhaled Kim grabbed my shoulder with a comforting grip letting me know she heard my sigh and said " leave all of your "boxes" in here I will go through Them all and when you come back we will go through them together" I never went back to go through my "boxes"... May Kim's soul rest in peace and may god take care of one of the most beautiful women I have ever known the way that she took care of us.

I believe that gifted people like Kim pass a flame of caring and love to the hearts of everyone that they know. If I am correct then Kim set this world ablaze with her love, compassion and acceptance of all who had the honour of knowing her or being part of her life.

So sorry to hear Kim passed away. I worked with her for a number of years at the Royal Ontario Museum. She was a talented graphic designer and a pleasure to work with. My condolences to her friends and family.

My name is Carla. Kim was my most recent and favourite therapist. Her empathy and intelligence made her the best therapist one could ever hope for. She really helped me through a hard time in my life and I will always be grateful that I had the opportunity to have her as my therapist. My condolences to her family and friends.
