Every mother wants a daughter. I was blessed to be Kim’s mom for 16 short years. She was a vibrant, beautiful young girl with everything going for her. Her smile was contagious and she would light up a room when she entered. She had a wonderful sense of humor that would brighten your day. Kim taught us to make the most of every day taking the time to be kind. She made the courageous decision to become an organ donor when getting her driving permit. Little did I know I would be faced with that decision 3 short months later. Her gift of donation has impacted my life aiding in the grief process. I am comforted knowing she lives on in her donors.
Having Kim for 16 years has made me who I am today.
