Kim is remembered as fun to be around, eager to laugh, and always so happy. 
She greeted each person with love in her heart, and welcomed everyone. 
Her sense of humor and love of all children really shined. 
She loved her nieces and nephews as if they were her own. 
They all hold fond memories of the freedom, acceptance, and love that Aunt Kim shared with them. 
Her greatest accomplishment is being the best grandma ever.
She always gave her grandchildren time, love, and laughter. 
She is proud of each kid and their unique way of being themselves. 
Our hearts go out to her surviving grandchildren whom she loves deeply.
