Dear Patty, Ray and Chris. My first remembrance of Kim was you pushing her in a stroller at the church fair. I enjoyed watching Kim turn into a fine and beautiful woman because of your love and guidance. I used to enjoy you coming over with Kim and Chris and spending hours with us watching them play in our pool along with Jen and Brandon.

I will think of Kim often and smile when I remember the loving way she always called you Mommie.

Dear Family of Kimberly Apel, when i came into school today, i was looking foward to seeing Kim, but then a teacher pulled me aside from my first class. I knew it was either bad or good news. As soon as i heard this news, my heart stopped. I didn't know what to do. I got tears in my eyes. I felt like a part of my heart had been ripped out of me. I couldn't beleive this news, but i knew i had to accept this. But, as soon as a got home, i cryed for a very long time. I was thinking, this can't be right. She has to still be there right in her office tomorrow when i come to school, but then relized this is reality and somtimes you have to give up things that you would never want to give up. But just writing this is making me teary. I am sorry to her loving family. I will miss her very much . Especially her awesomely hilarious laugh, her very kind smile , and her most generous heart. I will never forget the time she gave me a pencil, i will never let the pencil be lost, broken , or forgotten . I will have it everyday where ever i go and every time i look at it remind myself of Kimbery Laura Apel. She will never be forgotten . Kim , i love you so much and i always will . (i knew her ever since Ryerson through polson).I will never forget you. I guess i won't be stopping by your office everyday to say hi anymore. I will miss that too and seeing you everyday after lunch . ... what will i do without you. I LOVE YOU!!! :'( ( sad face crying ) Love your buddy Grace Murphy-Zuckerman <3 I'll pray for you every night :)
