    I will never forget the first time I met Kim. I knew she was the perfect match for Kevin. She found a way to smile through all the pain and heartbreak that life threw at her. Sometimes life is cruel and we will never understand why things happen the way that they do. I am sure Kevin and Ethan were waiting to take her home. Kim had such a caring heart and a gentle soul that made her so special and a smile that revealed just how beautiful her soul was. May you rest in peace Kim, you will be forever missed. We are keeping Michaela and Aiden close in prayer. 🤲
