May faith prove even stronger than the loss that you now face, And may you know God’s healing love, His comfort and His grace."

    My words can not express the pain I feel for your family. So many memories, the sound of her laughter, the caring in her voice, the love she had for life. Kimmie was such a wonderful person in so many ways. When I needed a friend, a fresh start, she and Tommy were there. Tommy, I understand the suddenness, the anger and shock you are feeling, and all the emotions you are going to go thru. I am here. Me and Eric will be here for you and all of your family. Smile when you say her name, when you think of her remember the good times, the love you shared. It is OK to laugh and have fond memories of all the good times. And it is OK to cry. Tears and laughter will get us all thru the shock of losing our Kimmie. We love you. I pray for you and all your family. God Bless you.

    Tobi Sue said it all, we love you guys. Friends like yall are family. I will always cherish the time we got to spend together, and look forward to more time with you in the days to come Tommy!
