I just saw this today, June 14, 2018. We were in St. Clairsville on Monday. The song, Sunny, came on and I told my husband that that song always reminds me of Kim; she loved that song. So sorry to read of her death!

Since I learned of your mother’s passing, I find myself thinking of you and your family and how much we will all miss her. I am comforted because I am one of the lucky ones whose life was touched by this very special woman. I join you and the many others who will miss her, but I remain grateful still for having known her. Love you Kym….
