Our mother, Kim, as you all know, is an incredibly memorable lady. She was a selfless being who was always using her selflessness to find a way to make every individual she encountered smile. She battled many demons in her days, but never stopped fighting, even in the most difficult moments. She was always ready for an adventure (as long as it wasnt over 70 degrees outside). Hot natured by design, she preferred the beauty and the air of the mountainsunless, of course, it was for her grand babies. She would move Heaven and Earth to be there and show them how proud she was to be their Mimi and a staple being in their lives. This one of a kind human gave and gave, and GAVE, even when she had nothing left to give. She spent her last days thinking of what she was going to get her grandchildren for Christmas and making sure that each gift was perfectly crafted to each little personality, so intent on seeing their smiles, more concerned about her loved ones than shed ever been about herself. All who know her knows she was feisty and yet so gentle within the same breath. She enjoyed celebrating others and taking trips to just sit and watch the ones she was with smile. If anyone ever wonders what perseverance looks like, please tell them the story of Kims difficult but beautiful life. She will always be remembered for her benevolent heart and her emanating love for those who surrounded her. We thank God for the short time he let us borrow her soul here on earth to shape us into who we are today, and we can not wait to keep her alive through ourselves, our kids, and her awe-inspiring memories. Forever proud to be her daughter, we are so glad our mom is finally home.
