    I am very sorry to hear the loss of my cousin Kim. Our last encounter was at my parent's 50th anniversary and I was so happy to spend time with Kim, Kendra and my aunt Shirley. Kim was full of life and was a pleasure to be around. I know that she loved her family and loved life. Kim enjoyed a good time and was very outgoing. I will always cherish the time that we spent together. My wife Lorei-an and I will continue to pray for the family during this difficult time.
