    Kim I will never forget the many holidays we spent together as children with grandma and grandpa. You will always be a part of my earliest memories of happiness, laughter, holiday dinners, Christmas songs and presents, and playing at the beach. I am glad you are with our family now. Please give them all my love.

    I have so many happy memories of spending Christmas holidays with my cousins Kim and Charlie. Playing croquet, singing Christmas carols while Grandma Lewis played the piano, trying to escape Grandpa Lewis' tickling, but always coming back for more. Prayers for Charlie, your precious children and your friends that they will find peace and comfort in knowing that you are with our Savior now and free from pain. Until we meet again, I will keep you in my heart.
