    Kim was one of a kind. When I say a good person that’s just what she was Kim didn’t meet a stranger Kim’s heart was pure as gold you could ask for a better friend or neighbor. Kim was my neighbor for 5 yrs and when I say one of the best neighbors also momma and grandmother her grand kids was her world she’s truly gonna be missed and she left behind a lot of love ❤️ and good memories rest in love Kim till we meet again heaven has gained another angel

I met her and Jordan at church and will never forget that smile the last time I saw her was in Walmart and as I walked off after talking with her I said see you next time girl. Never knowing it would be the last.Rest in peace friend.
