I was so very sorry to learn of Kim’s passing. We flew together often in Miami and commuted from Cincinnati to Chicago in the early 80’s. She was a dear sweet friend who was kind, generous, funny and sincere. My thoughts and prayers to her entire family.

My deepest condolences to Kim's children, family, and friends. Kim had a gentle spirit and was beautiful inside and out and no doubt left behind countless beautiful memories. We went to high school together and worked together for a short while after high school. She left a lasting impression on me as I am sure she did with everyone she met. Praying that her memory strengthens and sustains you until you meet again.
