Kimmers, my dearest friend....forever. Incredible cat Mom, creative & free spirited.

Kim & James fished everywhere.

She would join in song at the Bi-Mart, with Salvation Army bell ringers.

Loved sloths, Thomas Kinkade & designing homemade cards.

Really a TRUE friend.

"Grief, I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give but cannot.

All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat,

and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go." Jamie Anderson.
