I had a 40th High School reunion last evening and sadly learned  the death of this dear classmate.  I went to elementary school and high school with Kimberly.   We were childhood friends and visited each other many times by riding our bikes to each others homes.  I was completely shocked to hear of Kim's passing and am deeply saddened.   To her mother and husband I am truly sorry for your loss.  Kim was a very kind and beautiful person and she is at peace now..but what a fighter she was.   She will be truly missed by many.  My condolences...Shawn (Suzie) Frengel   God will take good care of this wonderful human being.

I'm still in shock over Kim's passing. There was times when we would go a year or months without talking and when we did we could go on forever catching up on our lives. She was my best friend since school and I'm so gonna miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with Randy and her family. I'll miss her dearly
