Kim was an amazing person. I was blessed to have been able to call her friend. She holds a special place in my heart. I will always remember her smiling face, her wonderful way of looking at the world, and her determination to tackle anything that was given to her. She will be missed!!!

There shall be no more sorrow, nor crying or pain. ..for the former things have all passed away and now Behold I make all things new. For a battle so bravely fought, now a life swalled up in Gods great love is Kims every moment. An example to others that by drawing on His grace battles can be fought without fear controlling you. That courage is real when your eyes are fixed, for your heart follows where your eyes are fixed. For other cancer victims, they need to see there truly is a source of strength hidden in God and these are not just words we use.
These words are faithful and true....and the certainty of it is seen in lives lived out as Kim did throughout her trial. Having overcome, she is now drinking fully from the fountain of the water of life and will we remember her and the path she walked ...hand in hand with eyes fixed. Is He your GOD? That is what witnesses remind us.
Kim did that and thereby brought glory to GOD, which is the point of our life. Kim lived it well and we will remember.

No matter what, she always had a smile on her face! She was the light in many, many lives! Our joys will be greater, our love will be deeper, our life will be fuller because we shared your moment. She will be missed greatly, and although we only got to hold on her to her for a short time, she will be held in our hearts forever.
