So very sorry to hear about Kim´s passing. Too young! Love the pics posted. Especially the one showing her great exuberance & joy rolled into one. That´s how I remember her at DCJS. Always a smile, happy-go-lucky gal. Great laugh & just a sparkler all around. My deepest condolences to her family, loved ones & friends, of which she had many. May you be at peace, in a greater joy than can be described, with our Savior, Jesus. And we will meet again & Forever share the wondrous triumph of God´s great heaven.

My dear sweet sister, I miss you soooo much! I can´t believe you are gone so soon, I don´t know how I will live without you being a phone call away!! We were supposed to hang out the week after you passed, but God called you home instead! I will miss you so much and will be looking to see you again one day!! I love you soooo much!!

My deepest sympathies to Kim´s family. I knew Kim a very long time ago down at Torchy Martins place in Selkirk. We rode horses together. If it wasn´t for the love of horses and Kim I wouldn´t have started showing and jumping horses. God speed.

Kim was a character. She was a fun person who was very content with her life. She loved horses, her cats, her opossum who visited regularly and afternoons at the casino. She was interesting to talk with and I will miss our conversations.
