Kim was my neighbor and friend for over 25 years, our children grew up together. When Kim stopped working, we often took long walks through our neighborhood as early as 5am, laughing and critiquing houses (sorry neighbors)! We had so many deep discussions on our walks. Kim was extremely proud of her daughters and is one of the most positive people I’ve ever known. During her courageous 27 month battle with Glioblastoma, Kim’s kind and gentle spirit remained intact, always seeing the positive side of life. We could put the whole neighborhood together and still not rival her positivity. Her sense of humor was unwavering: always quick witted and willing to jokingly give a neighbor — including me — a hard time. I will truly miss my walking buddy; mornings will not be the same without her.

Kim and I have been friends since the eight grade. She was so fun and funny – a true joy to be around. In my minds-eye, I can see her laughing and doing the bunny hop with her fingers! I hope everyone has these good memories of her too since I can’t seem to grasp the thought of a world without Kim.
I hope Ladd, Liz and Ashley find comfort in knowing what a special friend she was to everyone and you are her greatest legacy – make her even more proud, if possible.

I am so sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the many friends of Kim – I know she will be missed by all.

Kim was another helpful mom to my daughter Natasha. During middle school they had walking Mondays to their house and she fed all of kids who showed up. Kim was my car pool buddy for dance and camp. Even in college Kim sent yet more food and kind words to Natasha, even her own mother didn’t do that! She was such a kind person who never made things difficult. Her faith was evident when ever I was around her. I will miss her radiant smile. God Speed Kim.
