I am so sorry to hear about Kym, we worked togather @ Midwest Veterinary Supply. I remember Kym’s smile which lighted a room and she was such a joy to work with for the short time she was here. My heart goes out to her husband Tim and her children who she loved very much. Kym you will be missed and may God Bless you and keep him in the Palm of his hand.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Kym’s passing. I went to broadcasting school with Kym in Austin, way back in the day. She was a good friend in those days and I have wonderful memories of the time we spent together. We lost touch after school, but I have often thought of her and wondered how she was doing. She was such a fun person, with an infectious laugh! My deepest sympathy to her husband, children, and all the rest of her family. I know that she will be deeply missed.

Kim was such a bright soul and will be TRULY missed! Her smile lit up the room and she always had the most brilliant blue eyes. I will miss her energy, kindness and her genuine spirit.

She always would invite kids over and always said “ it’s no problem. They are always welcome” Love you sweet Kim. I know you will be watching over your children, husband and friends and family.
