Memories Timeline


  1. I regret not knowing Kim more, but from my short time in her presence, I learned this. She is genuinely kind. She has a deep love for the Lord and for her family. It was well-known to many how much she loved her daughter Shaina, husband Randy, and cherished the moments with her grandchildren. Words will never be enough to replace her leaving this world. If anything, the hearts that hurt at this time are a testimony to how great of a person she is. I offer you my deepest condolences. We won’t let you walk this path alone. 

  2. I’ve only known her for 4 short years . We hit it off right away . She’s the most kindest soul I ever met. I never seen nothing but a smile on her face . When I heard the news it just hurt my heart. We have lost a beautiful kind soul . You will be missed kim . We love you 

  3. My deepest condolences to Randy and their families. My last memories of Kim were her cutting up and laughing she couldn’t help herself she loved life and laughter. What a great last memory to have of her in my mind. She will be greatly missed by everyone. Much love & prayers for you’ll.

  4. Randy: What a blessing and treasure to meet with you and Kim and to share laughter, love and creativity. She is terribly missed. I keep you and all of your family and faith community lifted up.

  5. You all have our deepest condolences.
    Even though we had seen her in years we ask about her.
    The funniest part of my memory was going to the zoo with her Mom and dad( Gary). She was like 9 months old she grabbed my husband hamburger and stuff the whole thing in her mouth. Then she grabbed his pack of cigarettes and tried to eat them. That day was so much fun cause of her.
    Again I'm so so sorry.

  6. Randy and Shelby we are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers 

  7. I met Kim at Yokosuka Baptist Church in Japan 🇯🇵in 1997 – the tday her (then)husband was being baptized. We instantly became inseparable friends. Especially when we found out we live on the same offbase housing…in the same building..just one floor apart. Kim and her family quickly became a part of my family ❇️ and we leaned on each other when our husbands were deployed. 
    We were fortunate enough to vacation 🗺️ together several times….California, South Korea (twice), Orange Beach, and Vegas Baby!! Most recently I was conspiring 😈 with her daughter, Shaina, to pull off an epic surprise. February 2024 I was going to surprise Kim by joining her and her family on a Royal Caribbean cruise 🚢 Oh what I wouldn’t give to see her face and hear her squeal/scream in excitement😢
    Since I received this heartbreaking 💔 news, I have been flooded with memories of who she was,  how she made me a better person and how she made me laugh! I can hear her now…“When I’m gone, you better tell everyone how awesome I was!!”🗣️
    The last several days random memories have surfaced…26 years of memories!! 
    We definitely had similar taste – music, faith, travel, hobbies, and “fashion”. You would often see us in the same outfits. We even had professional pictures taken! 🤣 That was a fun photo shoot. The photographer didn’t quite know what to do with us. So many laughs!!
    My fondest memories of Kim was in 1999 when she was my maternity 👶 coach and helped deliver my daughter. Our husbands were deployed 🇺🇸 and she was all I had. She was with me all night in the delivery room. She was home for less than 2 hours when I called her in a panic because Rachel was having some major 🙏 complications. She made arrangements for all the kids (Nicholas, Shaina and my 3 year Joshua) and was back at the hospital within the hour. I couldn’t have made it through that ordeal without her nor would I have wanted to. 
    I was lucky for 26 years to call Kim 💜💛 my very dear friend. I know she was a woman of God ✨ and I have no doubt in my mind that I will see her again when my time on this earth is over and the Lord calls me home too. Until then I will tell anyone who asks how awesome she was❣️

  8. Dear Mrs Kim, I always enjoyed your company, how much you gleamed Jesus. You have the tightest hugs. Speaking with you and spending time was always nice. I want you to know on our last coffee date where of course we made plans for another one that everything you said meant so much to me, it was so inspiring. I’m so happy I got to see you when I came back for a little! I will forget cherish that coffee date. And I look forward to another with you one day ❤️ love you Mrs Kim
