My heart could not be sadder to hear of Kim passing. We worked together for years at the Colonial Inn and our co-worker relationship grew into a GREAT Friendship. Kim was a Beautiful person inside and out and was a VERY GOOD Friend to me. Although it had been several years since we talked, I often thought of her and how I needed to get a hold of her and catch up. Wow, lesson to us all, do it when you think about it. Call that person that is on your mind.
To Sam – so sorry – to lose such a wonderful girl, daughter and friend, she always loved you so much.
To Deb – we all got to know each other at the Colonial and have lots of memories, I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. I can not imagine the pain.
To Abby and Alex – you probably don’t remember me, but I remember you, I use to spend quite a bit of time visiting your mom when you were small, I have fond memories of you both as toddlers. Your mom loved you so much and was a very good mother to you both. She would always keep me in touch over the years when we would talk of both of you and I could still hear the love that she had for you.
Just want you to know my heart hurts for all of you in your loss of such a beautiful person. I will pray you all can find healing in the Word of God as you go through the days ahead and that the good memories of her will soften the pain in all of your hearts.
You are all in my prayers.
