Darrell and Joyce I'm so sorry for your loss. No words right now can heal your hurt but I want you to know that I'm here for you and the reason I have not called was to leave you alone in this terrible time and I did not want to add anymore emotional stress on you both. I love both of you and we can talk at some point and again I'm very sorry.

Uncle Darrell, Aunt Joyce, Cousins Sarah, Zach, and Jeff, One of the memories of Kim I hold dear and close to my heart is when Grandma Robinette died, and the whole family came down. At Grandma's service of remembrance, as the family said their last goodbyes, Kim walked to the foot of Grandma's casket, took a single stem of the Blue Iris, and placed it beside grandma in her casket. Blue Iris was Grandma's favorite, and Kim knew that. That gesture was one of the kindest, most selfless, gentle acts of love and respect a person could show an elder of the family, and I'll forever remember Kim in that light. Her visits to NC, and our visits to DE were always joyful, full of laughs, and laced with that common familial love for one another. When I think of Kim, it will be her joy, and her love she gave. Her life impacted mine, her act of love taught me a lesson, and for that, I will ALWAYS be grateful. Please know you all are loved so very much that you can't even begin to fathom the depth of that love. Death is the end of the physical presence of Kim for us, but for HER it is the glorious beginning of life everlasting. In your sorrow, find a small chance to rejoice and give thanksgiving, for now, if only in that. You are loved. Til the dawn breaks.
