    I remember Kim’s visit here in Virginia a few years past. She always had a sweet smile and good nature. Rest with the angels dear Kim.

    Kim loved life, an adventurer. She worked hard and played hard. She never met anyone she didn’t like. If you needed help, she was right there. Her family was her biggest joy! We planned on traveling when we retired and of course it would be an adventure, her dragging me around doing all kinds of crazy things. Kim was my friend, family for 40 years through good and bad. We got through it together. I don’t know how to go on without her. Rest in peace.

    Kimmers meant the world to my kids and I. We spent many summers going on camping trips with our kids. Some of my most favorite memories are with Kimmers. I will miss you and love you forever……..

    I was so shocked to hear of Kim’s passing. Have been a close friend of her Moms (early 70s) for years. First met Kim when she was about 10 yrs old I believe. Always a sweet child and loving gal. So sad way too young.
    My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to her Mom Sue and Penny Sue and entire family and friends .
    May Kimberly rest in peace and our dear Lord take very special care of her and her family.

    With warm loving thoughts of all of you. Karen (aka Charlie)

    I will miss Kim so much. She’s been a big part of my family for many years.. We had lots of great times together recently at my home. I helped her when she was sick, and she helped me recently when I was sick., recovering from his surgery. She’s a very giving person. Very special to me. I will miss our long phone conversations. I love her very much. She really loved her mother, children and grandchildren.

    So sad to hear of her passing. When my husband and I first moved to Holly she was one of the first to welcome us to the neighborhood. Her smile and giving spirit will be missed.

    I just found out today about Kim’s passing and was so sad to hear this from my son Brandon. My Brandon was friends with her Brandon and Randy since they were about 9. I always loved running into Kim while she was working and we would just catch up on our kids and grand babies, which we were both so proud of.
    Rest in peace beautiful lady!
