“God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes
and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
The former things has passed away.”

I was privileged to get to know Kim through my job. She was a lady of love and caring for others even when she was going through her own struggles. I will miss her! My prayers for her family. Fly high Kim!

Our friendship developed throughout the last 5 years and I watched with amazement how she handled the hand she was dealt with grace and dignity. My kids certainly enjoyed her in the cafeteria at the school and they had stories to share! My sympathies to Roman and all her family and in laws. May she fly high and rest on peace with no more pain and suffering. Thanks for leaving behind some great memories!
