I went to Kimberly's memorial service in Iraq. My husband and I now own a CrossFit gym in Peoria, IL. CrossFit has various work-outs named after fallen service members. Tonight we are doing a women's only work-out and are naming the work-out after Kimberly. We will be reading her biography to our athletes tonight.

It has truly been my honor to sign Kimberly's guest book these past few years. Unfortunately, due to complications from my Multiple Sclerosis, it has become increasingly difficult for me to continue after this message. Please forgive me and know that Kimberly will always be remembered in my home.

All were weeping and mourning for a girl, when Jesus said: "Do not weep any longer, for she is not dead, but sleeping." Lc, 8,52
Rest gently between the arms of God who 8 years ago called you in his light, cuddled by the prayers and affection of those who loved you so much and will love you forever until we'll meet you again at Heaven's door. Rest in peace, little wonderful flower, broken on the earth and blossomed in Heaven.

Taking time out of my busy day to remember a fallen hero. You will never be forgotten. RIP young warrior.

Kimberly, I feel that I've known you always as your parents are just so wonderful and honor you with love each and everyday. I love your smile and when your mom posts pics sometimes I see your dad in your and others your mom. If not for the death of our children I would not have met your parents but God has brought us together and because we love our children we are able to keep their memory alive by sharing them with others. May you rest in peace and may your parents always be comforted by God's love and strength that only He can give. hugs to you

Six years have passed since this fine young American gave her life on active service. In that time much has changed, and our perceptions of peace and security have been battered beyond recognition. What hasn't changed however is the willingness with which honorable men and women don the uniform of their country, move out of their comfort zone and put themselves in harm's way as they seek to provide protection, justice and help in the cause of freedom. They leave behind those who love them best and sadly, many do not return but still they strive to do right, and this attitude could not be better summed up than by the life and service of Kimberly Hampton.
How her parents, friends and others must miss this golden child, as much now as when she left the earth. I can only hope that time brings sunnier days in which to share all their special memories of her and that they are aware of just how many lives this young woman touched in the few years granted to her.
Rest in peace Kimberly - your memory is shining bright across the years.

”Honor and Remember” - “Project Compassion” We love our Soldiers! We love our country and we cannot express enough love and compassion to the families of our fallen heroes. War does not discriminate – It breaks our hearts to see the faces of the fallen. We want to give this gift to the hero’s Mother, Father and/or spouse. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization! Over 1,800 portraits have been completed and shipped to the parents and or spouse - at no cost as this is a gift from one American to another!
This is a gift! We have some wonderful sponsors who help with the costs, and only want you know that we care.
Contact us directly at or go to . If you have already had a portrait completed, we pray that you are enjoying the portrait and God Bless You.
Sincerely and Respectfully,

Sitting here at my desk in Australia, for no definite reason, no significant date, I decided to revisit the memorial site for Captain Kimberly Hampton. I've taken time to reflect on the life of this extraordinary young woman on many occasions, and I do want to tell her family and all who loved her that even those of us not privileged to know her in her lifetime keep her memory fresh. She remains an inspiration to all, no matter where we live. Rest peacefully Kimberly - and with sincere good wishes to your family who miss you so much.
May 25, 2009
Rest In Peace. I did not know you in life but from all that I read you were an amazing person and that the world is a darker place with out you. I will never forget and I will always cherish your gift of Freedom.

I served under Kimberly in the ROTC battalion while attending Presbyterian College. We were all in awe of her, and will always remember the inspiration she personally brought out in me as a student, and as an American. She will always be my hero.

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

I did not have the honour of knowing Kimberly. I do, however, know she is a hero of mine. She is an inspiration. She is what defines a hero. After realizing her heroism, I soon realized I had some growing up to do. Because of heroes like her, I am a better person. Thank you Kim. You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace brave soldier.

Happy Birthday Kim

You are not forgotten

June 15, 2008
For those of you who never met have no idea the light and enthusiasm that shined around her! I knew her since we were young tennis players in South Carolina...and into our college years when we taught camp over the summer. Every time I drive through Easley, I think of her...and other times, too! Knowing that she died doing something that she loved makes it a little easier...but never takes away the pain. To Mrs. Hampton...I can never say I'm sorry for your loss enough...but I want to thank you because without you, I would never have known Kimberly!!

To those who are still fighting for our freedom...we can never say thank you enough! Stay safe.

To the family and Friends of Capt. Kimberly N. Hampton:

Stand Tall!! ... Stand Proud!!

For 232 years America's sons and daugthers have answered freedom's call. Because of their ultimate sacrifice our flag flies high and proud. America will continue to be the land of the free because of the brave.

Tomorrow at 3:00 P.M. a grateful nation will pause and remember Kimberly and all those who have died.

I will never forget your sacrifice. May you Rest In Peace Kimberly and may god grant comfort to your family and friends.

Today it's my privilege and honor to sign the memorial page for Captain Kimberly N. Hampton. The mere sight of her beautiful face with that wide and wonderful smile would be enough to let one know that here is a very special girl. Reading of her life, her service and, sadly, her death shows that special hardly begins to describe her. She chose the hard path in a tough lifestyle, while maintaining her femininity, showed purpose and determination, and at the end, proved herself to be more than worthy company for those of the Airborne who preceeded her. To her parents and family, to those who knew and loved her, to the community devastated by her loss, and to a country which would have continued to benefit from such a woman, I can only say how sorry I am that this life was cut so short. Reading about Kimberly should make each of us take stock of our own lives and try hard to make them worthy of her sacrifice. God Bless Kim, her family and her Country.

I don't pretend to know what to say or do that would bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON (KIA on 07/06/07) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

In Remembrance of Capt. Kimberly N. Hampton, on the 3rd anniversary of the day she gave her life for our Country and for Freedom.
May Kimberly, rest safely in God's Loving Care and know that she is a True American herorine, that shall Never Be Forgotten.
May the Peace of the Lord be with the Hampton family.
There will never be enough ways, to humbly thank these Heroes, for their Supreme Sacrifice, my brother among them. KIA-Vietnam 1967.

"And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes,
there shall be no more death,
nor sorrow, nor crying,
there shall be no more pain.
For the former things have have passed away."
Revelations 21:4

As another New Year begins without your precious Kimberly, Please know she is close, in your heart and soul.
May you find peace in knowing the love and memories you have, will remain with you forever and that this Country remembers her sacrifice.
I am deeply sorry for your loss

Almost three years and the torment, frustration and pain from that day is still just as real. For those who were there, for those who remember your honesty, your concern and belief in what is right and true... we miss you painfully knowing that we may never have our own peace... Keep watch over God's Angels... your friend, your brother and one who will never forget. Shadow 6

I never knew you, and we have never met. However, we are related through the uniforms that make this country free, and sometimes the price we pay to wear these uniforms can cost us everything. Thank you, Kimberly, You are my HERO!
