Lott, Kim  
Mrs. Kim T. Lott Sumrall, MS "I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness..." --2 Timothy 4:7-8a Services will be held at 11:00 A.M. Tuesday at The Church of God at Bellevue for Mrs. Kim Tonette Lott, 54, of Sumrall, MS, who died May 22, 2015 at Forrest General Hospital. Interment will be in Burkhalter Family Cemetery. She was a homemaker and a member of The Church of God at Bellevue. She is survived by her husband, Keith Lott of Sumrall; her parents, Brent and Carol Burkhalter of Sumrall; two sons, Jason (Chrissy) Levi Broome and Heath (Danielle) Broome, both of Sumrall; two sisters, Angela and Robin Burkhalter both of Sumrall; two brothers, Darren and Shawn Burkhalter, both of Sumrall and four grandchildren, Hartley Broome, Ayden Broome, Owen Broome and Levi Shows. Visitation will be from 5:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M. Monday at The Church of God at Bellevue. Mrs. Kim Tonette Lott was a faithful, compassionate wife and a giving daughter, sister, mother, and grandmother. She was also a tireless, devoted servant of the church of God who gave herself to all in need. In her formative years, Kim was a hard-working, talented young lady, but she believed that anything good that we saw in her life truly began with the grace of God that forgave and embraced her, on October 9, 1987. From that day, she felt that her purpose was to share the same love she received with everyone she encountered, and to this end, she gave all that she had. Kim would have described herself as a simple person who just wanted to work for God and help people. For a time, we were privileged to witness the life of a beautiful saint; a living sacrifice, whose desire to do was motivated, not by an ambition for personal gain or recognition, but instead, by a real love for others. She rejected all forms of prejudice because in every interaction, she saw an opportunity to be an ambassador for Jesus. Kim loved to be around children and young people. She influenced many of them as a school volunteer; especially those in First Grade. She was an energetic leader of children and youth choirs. Her home was a central place for many laughs, good food, and fun activities. The friends of her sons were her children too, so she was there to help with almost every High School and College graduation party along with wedding decorations and remodeling first homes. Those with spiritual needs were Kim's greatest concern. Many were the days and nights that she could be found walking door-to-door to hand out church pamphlets, praying for the sick, patiently listening to those who struggled, conducting Bible studies, or driving unchurched children to Sunday School when they had nowhere to go. Kim was always seeking to grow in her character, her relationships, and in her gifts. She was always excited about discussing a new idea, learning how to better relate to people, or how to more efficiently work with her hands. She was a diligent reader of the Bible and various Christian writings, and she was a regular worshiper and worker in camp meetings held in several states across the country. Kim possessed an adventurous, imaginative side and she loved long summer road trips that allowed her to experience the quiet majesty of nature and the grand architecture and excitement of busy cities. Her favorite place was Disney World. She loved Mickey Mouse, and she glowed when she saw the innocent excitement in the eyes of her grandchildren. In the last several years of her life, Kim bravely faced many hardships; the last and most difficult of these was cancer. Throughout every trial, who she was never changed. Her body weakened, but her sweet spirit never ended. In her final days, she was always praising the great generosity and the daily caregiving of her parents, and she often reminded her sons to always keep their loved ones close because there is no bond like family. With a willingness to sacrifice that was motivated by love, Kim touched more lives than she ever knew. Many of us will be longing for the day when we too shall pass through the thin veil between Heaven and Earth to reunite with her, forever.
