Her sister, Kelly, who she lived with at various times throughout her life, will so greatly miss her and states, “Kim had great “faith” and was not afraid of death.

Excerpt from the song:
“The Garden” by Jimmy Scott
“If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane
We’d walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.”
“It broke our hearts to loose you
But, you did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.”
“God looked around his garden
And he found an empty place
Then he looked down upon the earth
And he saw your precious face”
“He put his arms around you
And He lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best
Yes He always takes the best”
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7
