I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Kim was as great lady, I remember when I helped move her to Virginia, we only broke the lamp.
I will truly miss her.

Jen and family
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. These last few years have not been kind and especially the last year which also took my mom in February. I hope the 2 of them are sharing a beverage and laughing about the stupid things we did growing up! Love you girl. Thoughts and prayers are with you all in this difficult time.
