    I never got to tell you how much you really meant to me. Without you life wouldn’t have been the same. You gave me a safe space and the opportunity to be a kid. You had a huge part in my upbringing and are a big reason why I am the woman I am today. My childhood memories are full of you, my mom and nick and I never got to thank you for all of that the way I really wanted to, especially over these last few years. I hope you knew that even in hard times, how much I really loved you. Like a child loves their mother, I loved you the same. I’m so sorry that I allowed you to leave this world on the terms we were on and without telling you what you really mean to me. I will make that up to you by guiding Isey and doing my best to make sure he becomes the man he’s meant to be. Love you always.

    Aunt Kim,
    Growing up you were always the fun Aunt. The one who let us watch scary movies, and fed us all the junk food. You hated snakes, I remember a long time ago when you, mom and I were hiking and you thought you saw a snake. You jumped on my mom’s back freaking out only to find out that it was a stick. You introduced me to our Miami Heritage, taking me to Pow Wows and encouraging me to dance and take part. You are so special and spectacular. Though as I aged we grew apart, know that you were a great influence. My last words to you did not show gratitude or love and for that I am so sorry. There was so much left unsaid, But I do know that you know how much I love you. When Stephanie said you were like a second mother she hit the nail on the head. We couldn’t have asked for a better more amazing Aunt. I love you. I will always love you. And when I think about you I choose to only remember the good you did, the fun we had, the way you laughed, and that beautiful smile. Fly High sweet Angel. You will be missed down here.

    Where do I start. Going back in time, I remember the little things, like Easter Sunday after church and Mom had our baskets lined up on the dining room table and you would always look at everyone else’s and get mad and say we got more, but they were always equal. Haha. I remember the places you lived and what we did together. We always enjoyed picking on each other and a lot of things we did for each other. I remember when you worked at Groups and I would stop in and you would always feed me that good fish. I know we never had bad vibes between us but I wish that we could have talked more as the miles between us grew. Most everyone doesn’t know what we actually did together but that was you and I.
    I know your favorite baby blue sweater reminded you of Dad because he wore his baby blue sweater on special occasions. Rest assured his sweater is safe with me. I still have it. I know you always helped the family when no one has couldn’t. You stepped to the plate when we needed you. I know you always had a place in your heart for the nieces and nephews. “Aunt Kim” was your title and you held it with pride. Your quirky laugh will be remembered. You were feisty and didn’t take nothing when it came to morals being violated. You stood your ground and stood up for others. I could write a book. When you really think about it, you were always there for me and I you. You have touched the hearts of many and your legacy will live on. I know we will see each other again and my heart aches. I love you Big Sis.!! 💓 Say Hi to the ones who have gone before us. We will have the biggest reunion ever when we all meet again Indian Kim…..

    You were my friend before becoming my sister. We shared so many memories, from church to work, homes and families. I will miss you till the day I see you again. Always in my heart..I will love you.

  16. Rhonda on March 18, 2024 at 8:56 pm

    My sweet Kimmy. You and I know I haven’t called you that since we were kids. I always wanted to go where you went. Sadly, this time, I’m not able to but know and believe that we will be together when our Lord and Savior calls me home. Go rest high on that mountain. Know that I am so thankful for what you did for me and Nicholas. I’ll never forget it. Layla is missing you, as do I. I love you sissy, and always will.
