Johnnie… I am so sorry to hear about Kim’s passing but like I told you when she was in the hospital, I will always light a luminary for the two of you. Hope to see you at next years relay. Remember to look for the shamrocks 🙂
I, and my other coworkers in Central Registration at Chesapeake Regional, got to know Kim over the years as a wonderful, kind woman. She would tell us about her family & how much she was looking forward to the birth of her grandchildren. I’m so happy she was able to experience that joy. Kim was a special person & such an inspiration to us. My sympathies go out to her family.
We were so very sorry to hear of Kim’s passing. We had a wonderful dinner with her and Tammy at my mom’s house (Betty) several years ago. We shared some wonderful memories. Again, sorry for your loss – Kim was a lovely woman.
