Kim

So today, I am missing my Aunt, Kim. I miss her amazing strength and kindness. I miss her patience (with my Uncle C and his wild brood that always followed him). I miss her sweet and sometimes mischievous smile. I miss her in our family; she added so much to us. I sure wish she was still here. I know heaven is a wonderful place, not scary at all, but, sometimes the unknown is sort of scary even if you know deep down how great it really is. But today, I was comforted because I realized that when I die, or if ever someone I love dies, Kim will be there to take me under her wing and show me around. She is doing her thing in Heaven that she did on Earth, making people feel loved and cared for and at ease. I know that sound incredibly elementary, but it gave me a great deal of peace this morning.

I know what you mean. She had a way of bringing peacefulness with her wherever she went.

Thanks for sharing a tribute to her. It brightened my day!
