Sincere sympathies to you all on the loss of Kim. It makes us realize how short life really is. But we can look to Jehovah God's promise to resurrect our loved ones and bring them back to life so we can enjoyed their company once again. Acts 24:15. Kim will be missed for sure. So I pray for strength and comfort for your family at this sad time.

My deepest sympathies and condolences to Kim's husband, sons, and family. I'm at a loss for words to express my sadness. Her smile and infectious laughter fill my head. So many memories shared, tears shed, anger yelled and fun....so much fun when you were with Kim. Her family and boys meant everything in her world. When she married James she took on the role of wife and mother with enthusiasm and loyalty. She was proud of her family and fiercely protective of them. Austin and Kardel....she loved you from the moment she knew you were created. She will always be your biggest fan. I love you Kim. Even though hundreds of miles separated us, you were always in my heart. I miss you. Prayers and love to all left behind.

My deepest sympathy to all of you. I graduated with Kim and worked with her at Happy Chef. She would make me laugh even on a tough day. She was always the life of any gathering and I know she loved all of you just by how she spoke of you. May you find peace in God's love.

I am very sorry for your loss. io never got the chance to meet her. Kardel alway had a smile on his face when he came to school. So, Kardel, and family, I am truly sorry for your loss.
When I lost my uncle this Scripture helped me to cope.
I hope it will you too.

I am so sorry to hear of Kim's passing. As a customer of hers from the store, she will be greatly missed. She always had a comment about a Vikings game, showing me the newest items in the store, saying what was new with the boys and showing off her flashy nails. I loved her honesty and that you knew her true feelings by her eye rolls or big smile. She took great pride in her work and her family. I hope you and the boys cherish those scrapbook memories and smile at all the love and hardwork that she put into them for you.
I pray for God's grace, love and support to help you through your time of loss,
