  5. Dear Teri…..
    We just learned of Kim’s passing and wanted to let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and his family. Although it has been so many, many years since we have seen you…there are lots of memories of you, Kim, and your sweet Daddy and Mother. Not only were our families (Glenn & Dot Hunnicutt & kids) long time friends…but neighbors as well. May it be of comfort to you and Kim’s family to know that others care and are reaching out to each of you during this difficult time.

    With deepest sympathy,
