    How can I begin to tell you what you already know and that’s just how special Kim was. She was one of the most thoughtful people I know. Genuine, kind, selfless, always thinking of others before herself no matter what she was going through. Life for her was difficult but I don’t think she ever complained did she? Incredible person! I as well as allot of others received a sweet card for every season. We talked every now and then over the years but I did not thank her nearly enough. We seem to put off things we should do thinking we have more time and lesson learned we don’t. I thought of Kim often and loved her sweetness, so with her passing allot of I should haves becomes apparent. Susan and Vestene I love you and I know how difficult this is for the both of you. My prayers are with you and all your family. If I can do anything let me know. Know this, Kim has taught me an important lesson to keep in touch and let people know just how you feel about them as often as you can. She certainly did! An Angel on earth now in heaven and God’s arms! God Bless and I love you. April

I can’t imagine how sad you are. I just wanted you to know that I was thinking and praying for all of you . Kim Garland Phipps
