    She was a good friend of mine and I grew up with her! As I grew up I always admired Kim she was always so nice and treated me like one of her own! Since they moved in our rental trailer we have hung out so much and I really enjoyed being able to call her at 12 am and going horseback riding. She was amazing and I will miss her very much!
