Yesterday would've been my sister Kim's 43rd birthday. Here is just one example of the kind of person she was. At her memorial, her friend Joanne told me about this time when she went to the dentist. Joanne came out after seeing the dentist and her young son was playing a game on a Nintendo DS. Joanne asked him where he got the DS, and her son said that a lady had loaned it to him because he was bored. That lady ended up being Kim. She just loaned her device to a complete stranger, not knowing if she would ever get it back.
Like I said previously, many people at Kim's memorial talked about what a wonderful person she was. It's the way that we'd all like to be remembered and thought of. It was difficult but also helpful to hear how much she was loved and liked.
