    Aunt Kim will be sorely missed. She was fun loving, caring, and entertaining. She had the special ability to connect with children and adults alike. She certainly thought of others first. The memories throughout the years will leave a lasting impression far beyond what she could have ever imagined.

    Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Kim, I heard a lot about her from her son, Will.  She must have been a wonderful woman to raise such a great guy.  My love and prayers to Will and Piper.

    I've known Kim for some time now through the Clinton County Conservation Board.  She had an enthusiasm for the outdoors and working with children.  She was passionate, sometimes outspoken and yet had a way of filling a room with her smile.  Her absence will be surely felt.  My prayers go out to her family.

    We have no words to fully express our profound loss of this wonderful woman in our life. What a talented lady Kim was. When it came to painting, wallpapering and general home decorating Kim was the go to person. Her gentle personality was evident in her dealings with her clients. If she didn't like a decorating idea you had, she'd tell you! If you presented an idea to her that she didn't really care for she'd let you know it wasn't a good, practical idea. Kim will painting and wallpapering in heaven's glory. We'll sincerely miss her!
