MESSAGE FROM HER KIDS: 

"Our mom Kim, happens to be absolutely incredible. Raising two kids as a single mother, our mom spent most of our childhood life working anywhere from 2-4 jobs at once. Going above and beyond in raising her children, she also found time to help families in need and be an advocate of local drug rehabilitation programs. For the last 30 years our mom has lived in the same home, worked at the same job, and has never complained once. Even now, as grown adults, she still calls us daily to make sure we’re aware of the weather and to remind us to be safe on the roads. Her amazing ability to love everyone in her life and never judge has trickled down and shown us the importance of living life and loving everyone in it. Over the last year she has made the biggest change of her life by loosing over 90lbs and becoming her healthiest and best self. Our mom continues to inspire and motivate us with all that she can accomplish. Nothing is impossible with her. We can honestly say that of the thousands of people who have come to know our mom, there is not one single person who doesn’t adore her. She is a woman who never loses faith and has taken her morals and heart-loving attitude towards life and passed it on to her children and granddaughter who she loves more than anything. We love our mom and without her neither of us would be where we are today. She’s not just our mom. She’s our idol, our hero, our best friend, and absolutely, undeniably, incredible." -Cody & Steph

 

MESSAGE FROM HER BEST FRIENDS

"Kim is hands down one of the most amazing women you will ever meet. Her unconditional love and positive attitude is sure to draw anyone near. Once you meet her you will forever be changed by her contagious energy and love for life. I am proud to call her my best friend, appreciate and take notes of her parenting, love for her children and could honestly say i am a better person for knowing her. Thank you so much for honoring her - it is so well deserved!" -Corinne Harryman

 

"Kim and I have been friends for almost 27 years! Half of our lives. We have raised our kids together, talking about every bump and bruise along the way. She has always been there for me, she has helped with some tough things in my life with her wisdom and compassion. I always tell her that I want to be like her when I grow up, she is the strongest, most thoughtful person in the world. I love her to death and I am so grateful for her friendship. I low that we will be friends for the rest of our lives!" - Jane Alba
