We will keep Kimberly and the family in our thoughts and prayers forever. Kimberly was the best. Remember the good times and Justice will be served soon.

To Kim's family. I was deeply upset to hear that a former classmate of mine had passed in a tragic way.We were in the same shop at West Side Tech. She was great person and a friend. Its been since the class of 95 that i have seen her. And no one likes to have to remember someone under these circumstances. I pray that justice will be served. And the family can get closure.

Robert, Donna,Myranda & Family:I would like to express my deepest sympathy to you all. Kimberly was a dear friend to me and had been since I first moved to West Pittston. I will cherish all the memories I have with her, from the time that we spent palying on the fence at Christinas right up until the time we lived by each other in Pittston, and Myranda and David played together everyday. I know that Kim and I had not seen each other in a long time but she was one of the best friends anyone could ask for. She has been my friend through thick and thin happy and sad. She will be missed by all those who knew her, and had the opportunity to call her friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family through this very hard time. With Love and Deepest Sympathy..Diane (Ridley )Romanczuk

Bob, Donna and family,

I just don't know what to say, I have no words that can express how sorry Jim and I are for your loss. Even though Kim and DJ were no longer together, I still considered her my daughter in law and always will. I am sure I do not have to tell you what a great person and mother she was, you already know that. Kim will certainly be missed by many and I am thankful for all the memories and photo's I have throughout the years.

If there is anything I can do, just let me know.

We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

All our love,
Grandma and Poppy Jim

Our deepest sympathy for the entire family. Kim and I shared very few but memorable times when our girls were very young, but still in passing said our hello's and how are you. She was a very kind hearted person, and that attribute will live on through her family and very special girl Miranda. You are all in our prayers.

I went to school and grew up with Kim, we were always together when we were younger, I'll always remember and cherish the memories I have of us growing up, we had some good times, I will always remember that funny little laugh she had. Bob and Donna were like my 2nd set of parents way back them I offer you my deepest sympathies and prayers.
Although Kim and I lost contact thru the years I never forgot our friendship and in this time I'm so glad to have the memories and pictures I have to look back on.
She was a great person and I will always miss her and never forget her.

I worked with Kim at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, in the phlebotomy department. We often worked together in the outpatient area. Kim's most frequent topics of conversation at work were about her beloved daughter, her cat, and great times spent with her mom. I loved working with Kim.
After Kim left General, she went on to nursing school. I followed in her footsteps awhile later. In August 2007, as I entered the LPN program, Kim was in Level 4. We didn't spend alot of time together, although she did check on me quite a bit and gave me alot of encouragement and inspiration. I was so proud to see her graduate in December 2007.
I hadn't seen Kim since her graduation, but I had hoped that "one of these days" we'd get together and talk about old times. And now that will never happen.
I am heartbroken over the loss of Kim, and my thoughts and prayers are with her and her beloved family.

Aunt Donna, Uncle Buzz, & family...I don't know what to say. This is such a shock. Kim and I haven't always been close but the times we did share with each other were great. I remember camping at Indian River. We had such a great time. She will be sadly missed. If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.
