I did not know Mrs. Kimbro, but from the photo tribute I could see in the smiles the great love that surrounded her. How very beautiful! May that beauty and radiance surround all of her family, especially Major and Idora, my friends for many years. God’s peace be with you all. Janis

The human loss will never be calculated with Gerry’s passing because Mrs. Kimbro touched every life and person she knew. I so looked forward to the waves on her front porch and when I would see her at the grocery store, she would light up my life. She lived and left a legacy of love to her family and friends and I was so blessed to know her and love her. We can never forget this classy, kind, loving and gentle soul and no matter how many years may pass, I will still see her “sitting on that porch”. She was the epitomy of the word “class” and Bellaire has lost one of the best people ever born. Many prayers for all of her family in their loss of this grand old dame……….
Love, Steve and MaryJo (Zacchini) Kurko

Aunt Gerry, I read somewhere that the most treasured gift you can give to another is a piece of your spirit. And, as a child who was blessed to spend my summers with you I am eternally grateful. Full of dignity, full of grace, and brimming with love, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. “Look Freddy, he even walks like Donald!” I love you, Dennis
