Just thinking about my dear sister, who still guides me on a daily basis. Oh, how I wish she were here.

I am thankful to all involved for the updates on Kim's Garden. I enjoyed seeing the picture of Kim's mother and son. I wish everyone involved peace and progress.

Dear Kim,
I want you to know that Alex Portillo has become our gardener and he is such a joy to work with. Every time I see him I am reminded of you and he feels the same. Blessings and love, Sally

Dear Kim,
I have thought of you often and today your guest book appeared, so I can share a few words...
Fred and I have been living in Australia for the past five months and soon will return home. There are so many wildflowers and trees that are unique to Australia--you would love them. There's the "Kangaroo Paw," "Bottle Brush," "Waranth" and "Pin Cushion" to name a few. Mostly in reds and yellows.
Love, Sally

Dear Family,
While searching Facebook and the internet for my old high school friend Stewart, I learned of Kim's death. I was stunned and so deeply saddened. I went on to read about the rich life she had had and how many lives she touched. I reflected on my life in high school and my time with the Brenegar Family. Such good times, such loving parents - I wish I had the same in MY teenage life.

My fondest memory of Kim was the time we went on a "date" to see Chicago at the Norfolk Scope. It was a little weird taking out my best friend's "little" sister. We had a great time and got terribly lost on the "bad" side of Norfolk coming home @ 1am. We made it out safely (with no GPS!)and my male ego only a little bruised. I've told that story a hundred times. I have nothing but positive memories of Kim - her humor, her intelligence and her unique spin on life.

May God bless all who loved her. Memories of her will last forever.

With Love and Admiration for the Brenegar Family

Dear Julian and Allison,

I just learned of your mother's death. She was a ray of sunshine and perked me up every time I ran into her on the street. I hope you have drawn comfort in knowing how many people cared for her. A mother's love never leaves...she will be with you forever.

Dear Julian and Allison,
I was one of Julian's teachers at Jenkins Hill Child Development Center. I just learned of your mother's death. It's hard to know what to say. She was a very beautiful person. And you are very beautiful. Never doubt it.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I know your mother has a beautiful, strong spirit that still lives.

Kim was a unique, funny, and devoted friend. Whenever I heard from her, my spirits lifted and a smile crossed my face. When I was down, she would listen carefully and offer advice. When she was down I would try to offer advice, but it never seemed as good as hers. Kim created our garden in front and back when we moved into our 4th St. house in 1994. What had been a jungle of weeds was magically transformed into a sustainable and elegant shade garden. Just this past summer of '09 Kim planted an array of perrenials in an area where a tree was removed and it adds so much cheer to our back garden. I will miss our walks, talks, and visits to Smithsonian seminars and local plays.I am privileged to have known her.

To each of you who is suffering the loss of your beloved Kim,in your time of need, I pray our creator shows you His power through love, mercy, and peace!I know Kim through my friendship with Jeanne and Gil. I shared time with her on several occasions. She had a beautiful, gentle spirit. I will never forget her soft smile. I know she was hard working and unselfish. Her beautiful, intelligent, courageous children are a testimony to her character. Her love for them and pride in them was obvious. The creator knit her in her mother's womb. He knew the numbers of hairs on her head. He loved her more than the lillies of the field. So, we can trust that He knew her purpose was completed, and that she rests peacefully in His arms.My prayer for each of you is that your hearts will be lifted, and you will be set free to live your lives with purpose in her honor. With love, Doris Pierce

Kim was one of the most authentic people I have known. Very few people are so self-expressed and more interested in living an honest life than looking good. "Always blessings, never losses"...We were all fortunate to have known her.
