I am so sorry, I cannot image going through a child''s death but my sister last fall lost her daughter, my niece I was very close to. I was in schock n it carries its memories with you. It cannot be easy n to loose your mother at same time, too much to handle at once. I wanted to come to Karlas funeral but do not take paper n wasn''t notified but it s ok. I did keep in contact with
Deb soon as I found her.

You had your hands full n my heart was in schock n had no wheels but I was
There in spirit. I''ve kept in contact with friends who knew her through me and at "center" at parks n rec.

Hopefully someday we will meet again Kim or family and speak of fond memories when snuff time has passed. I''m praying always for you Kim n for all y live had to handle....God bless...ttyl, LaVon
