  2. My dearest daughter Kim, I love and miss you every second of every day. This is November. Of all the months November and December and May and June are horrible. The other months are too. I would love to be with you. I want to see you and hold you in my arms. Life is horrible on this earth for me. I love and miss you so very, very much. There are no words to explain the pain and hurt I have each day. I just wish the Lord would take me on. I love you with all my heart. Love always and forever, your ‘Moms’

  3. My dearest darling daughter. More pain. We had to have Andy put to sleep on May 1st, the day before your birthday. He could not walk anymore. It hurts so much. I miss and love him so. He was my darling baby boy…..He was the most wonderful little boy with four legs I have ever known. I hurt so much. I love you and miss you. I hope Andy is with you and running and playing with Pebbles, Candy, and Lucky and all the rest of our beloved pets…..Love you and miss you forever. ‘moms’

    I never met Kimberly but I pray that God grants your family justice for the people who did this and God grants you peace and shows you a direction to follow in Kimberly’s best interest.
    Feel free to email me any time you want to talk about her or her case. God loves you and grieves with you.

    Sincerely,

  23. Gennel, Kimberly is beautiful. I’m so glad that you sent me the link to this page. Having a memorial for our children helps in keeping their memory alive to so many. That is what inspired me to make Tommy’s website, and it helped me to do that as well. I did it for him.

  26. Just like a beautiful long-stemmed rose, Her precious memory grows and grows, touching the hearts of all of those she loved.
    And like the fragrance of that same rose, Her love, so sweet, still flows and flows, filling your lives with a warmth that shows She’s there.
    So like a forever-blooming rose, the beauty She shared eternally glows, for deep in our hearts, we know She still lives!
    God Bless You!
