    So sorry to hear of your loss. Kim was a sweet, lovable man that loved his family with a passion. I know you will miss him a lot. Things will not be easy at first but remember him with love and things will get better slowly. Love you guys. Let me know if you need anything as you know I have been there and understand more than you know. Val you are a strong woman and you will be there for you kids and extended family but let them be there for you also.

    Sweet Val, Our hearts break for you and the family. We all grew up together with Kim and Shelia hanging out together as children. Kim was always so kind to all of us and he never hesitated offering his help to us girls. He is resting in the arms of our Lord now and his weary earthly body is gone and he is free of pain. If there is anything we can do please let us know. You will be in our prayers in the weeks and months ahead. Remember that we love you and please lean on those that surround you now. Always remember that as long as you hold on to your memories, Kim will always be near. With love, Sharon, Linda, and Shelia Hales Billy and Sara Batchelor and Emily Bland

    I am very sorry to hear of of your loss. Kim was a great guy all around. We grew up together, same neighbourhood, and hung out often. Kim rode his scooter to my shop a lot, and would hang out with me. Just last week, we were talking about how much fun we all had growing up in the neighbourhood. He was on his way to Jacksons big oak barbecue, (he loved that huge old tree), to get some dinner for Val and the family. It was cooler that day on his bike, so he talked with me for about an hour. He spoke of his children so could just tell what a proud father he was. He loved his sweetheart Valerie, & wanted nothing but the best for her, his children & grandchildren. Kim would go out of his way to help his friends.....he helped Sheila fix her truck at my shop a few weeks ago. I’m gonna miss his smiles, and laughter..(he was usually always serious).... I'm grateful to have called him my friend. Kim was definitely old school, & didn’t care for nonsense. Thinking of you at this difficult time & keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
