Happy Birthday Melissa!

I have chemo again tomorrow, (3 weeks on 1 week off) I have a feeling they will be changing the chemo again, I'm starting to get those little blue bruises again, like when was running low of potassium. Being tired is the weirdest feeling in the world! I can sleep 24 hours straight and still feel like I just missed the missed the bed! lol When I first found out I had breast cancer, I thought ok, I'll have  it for a little while then when I am done, I done with it. You're aren't even sure how you feel about the cancer, they told me I would have 8 weeks of chemotherapy and 2 years of physical hormone replacement, I STILL don't know what exactly went wrong where but something sure didn't work out in my best interest......there are days I loaf of bread confuses me! lol

We all have our childhood issues and with my Brother he was always told he was never going amount to anything, he was no good..so My Father told him like his Father before him...My Brother's intelligence would be questioned,my Sisters's weight would always get asked even though she really wasn't overweight and you could never get away with calling me stupid! Well........I get pretty stupid now, Like a said a loaf of bread confuses me and I wish to God it was a joke! Who knew Chemo was so life altering huh?? lol

One of my buddies is in the mattress business and I am so impatient instead of waiting a few extra days I ran out and bought one by myself......instead of waiting for Jim....a queen didn't even fit in the back of suburban...I called my Brother and he saved me...(pick-up truck)....sorry BOB! Thought it was going to be a quick hop, skip and a jump and I'm in my new bed! lol Now I'm looking for a small student desk for Lil Jimmy's old room..... I have my lap top now and I am slowly getting used to it........just to keep all my paperwork on.

I never was a great house cleaner but I do want to at least look like I am putting the house in some kind of order.....don't worry I'm not going anywhere,,,,, Bob owes me lunch...they just refinished remodeling the restaurant so don't worry Bob there is still a chance you'll get to buy me lunch! lol lol lol

So what did I learn this weekend? Queen beds don't fit in suburban's, you can still call your brother to move a mattress, Bob still wants Mongolian BBQ and a lap top is not any faster than a PC!

To my friends and family that are giving me my space right now I really appreciate it, I'm not sure where my body is going with this cancer thing but it's definitely working it's way through the rest of me, I don't know how much chemo I am going to end up having, I never know how much illness I am going to have with it either, I just know it sure sucks right now to be me!

Kim,

I will miss you. I know that you are in a good place and in good hands. Your loved ones have my prayers and what strength words can bring. You are an amazing woman and your journey, that we all we take, has just begun.

Take care Kim, goodbye for now.

rdautumnsage said...

I so wanted to see that alert from you saying things were ok.....(tears falling) Hey kiddo, I know for a fact you went out swinging , kicking and screaming the whole way.....you fought so bravely, courageous till the end. You made me laugh, cry and laugh again at the same time.....This proves life isn't fair......you of all people deserved to still be here. There are so few that can lay claim to the beauty your spirit held, the love and compassion you gave everyone else. Even with all you had on your plate, I remember emails and comments to me, to help pick me up from whatever mood I was in.......J-land hasn't been the same lately.....now it's diminished beyond recognition without the beauty of your spirit to light the way.....You are definitely an "Angel In Blue Jeans".....You will always remain a part of me, my spirit will continue to let you shine......Love you....

To Kim's family I'm keeping each of you in my prayers on the smoke, I can't begin to imagine the loss of this beautiful soul from your lives. (Hugs) Indigo

Many of us are shedding tears for Kim's lost.  She was such a brave woman.  I am sure she is in heaven, still caring for her family from there.  My prayers go out for Kim, her family, and all her friends.  Her lost will leave such a void, as she was one dynamic woman.  Much love to all of you.  LaVern

bedazzzled1 said...

I have always thought that God gives the terminally ill the choice of their moment to pass away. I still believe it...even moreso now. Kim waited until the day AFTER Christmas. Doesn't that sound just like her? Always, always, always thinking about others' feelings.

To her family, you lost a jewel of a human being. And you have my deepest sympathy.

wipforever said...

I am so very sorry to hear of Kim's passing.  Her wit and will to fight were an inspiration.  May God comfort Kim's family, whom she loved so dear.

s0ngbird1962 said...

Just wanted you to know how much Kim touched my life....  I found her journal last winter while my Mom battled cancer too, my Mom's battle continues.   So incredibly sorry to hear that Kim has passed.  But thankful that she was surrounded by the family she so adores.  Kim, you often said that the only sadness you had about dying, was leaving your family behind.  And so dear Kim, my prayers go out to your family in this time of sadness.  May your strong belief that you will all be together again, bring them peace and comfort when the grief seems too overwhelming.

Don't think I'll ever see an adirondack chair again without thinking of you....

dbaumgartner said...

I haven't always commented here, but I followed Kim's journey and after the posts stopped my heart caught in my throat.

She was and is an awesome lady. She fought with all she had. Her spirit was remarkable.

I will always admire her for being just who she was and allowing us in to her life.

I'm so sorry for your lose.
Kim was a beautiful soul. I have followed her for a long time. She was one of the strongest ladies i've ever seen. Always so positive in times of dispair. God has him a good one at his side.
God bless you all. I'm praying for you.
Stay strong, that is what she would have wanted.

Take care  :-)

God bless of all your family Kim.  Their loss is one that many will never forget.  Thank you for sharing your pain.  

astaryth said...

I just returned to find the sad news of Kim's passing...

My thoughts are with her family at this time. Kim loved you all with a fierceness that was as much a part of her as her beautiful smile and loving nature. She was a 'mama bear' for the children and she loved Jim with all of her heart.

I will miss Kim. I will miss her humor, her strength, her poetry, her stories, and her beautiful way of seeing the world thru the lens of her camera. The world is a little darker for me today, but I know that there is a new bright light in the heavens.

You will be missed.........

When Kim was first diagnosed with breast cancer, my mom was just finishing up her chemo from her second battle with this disease.  Kim asked me lots of questions and to what my mom had gone thru and what she could expect.  Kim was such a warrior.  Dear Kim, I will miss you but I know you suffer no more!  I'm sure you're up in Heaven kicken some butt with those new boots of yours!!

gosso23 said...

I am so sorry. Kim was an inspiration to me. We battled BC together and she always sent such great words of encouragment. Her strength and humor made me get through some miserable days. I will never forget the great person she was and how she made my days a little brighter. To her family, take care and keep the precious memories close to your heart in this difficult time.

I hope that someone from Kim's family gets to witness this tremendous outpouring of love and admiration for Kim. It would be an understatement to say that she will be missed, but she surely will. Her family was lucky to have her, and we were lucky to know her. God bless you, Kim, and rest in peace...you now get to show Heaven what a great woman you are. I hope they're ready for you!

A great and beautiful spirit has moved on.

I started reading Kim's posts a few months back after a mutual friend posted a link to her blog. I was moved by her courage, her humor and her thoughtfulness.

Every year my daughter and I walk in The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. We will remember Kim as we are walking and honor her memory during the luminary ceremony at the end of the walk.

To Kim's family and friends, please accept my deepest heartfelt sympathies.

To Kim, rest peacefully while you continue to watch over those you love.

glensfork4 said...

To Kim's family, there are no words that can possibly take away the hurt you feel, but know that she was so loved by us here in the jland world. She made us feel so special and she fought so bravely. My prayers to you and your family.

Kim-you will be missed......

littlee3@bellsouth.net said...

Kimberleigh has been such a wonderful source of inspiration for me and many others.  I found her journal by accident one day when I was researching breast tumors on the internet to see what I might be facing in my own life.  She so inspired me by trying to look at the good things in life.  She always talked about how blessed her life was in spite of the cancer that invaded her body.  I will miss her wonderful sense of humor and that fighting warrior spirit she had.  My prayers are for Jim and the children.  She always worried about her husband and her children knowing they were the ones that would suffer when she passed on.  Take comfort in knowning Kim is at peace now.  She may be gone but she will never be forgotten.  Sending {{{{{Hugs and prayers to the family}}}}}

countrylady4071 said...

I just found out about Kim's passing.  I am so very sorry to hear this.  Kim was such a fighter, and a very positive person.  I think she inspired all of us.  I will truly miss Kim, but I'm sure she is in heaven.  Her pain is gone.  I pray God will comfort each one of her family members.  She so often wrote about how much she loved her family.  Rest in peace dear Kim.

Saving this journal.

I'm not sure how Kim's family feels about this journal or what Kim wanted herself, but I would hate to see her words simply deleted. Does anyone know if Kim's journal is to be saved?

Yes, I am saving it for her family.  Her sister knows about it and I am sending it to her.  They will give it to her husband also.  Thanks for thinking of the family at this time.

candlejmr said...

Kim....I have missed you so much lately and now it seems I will miss you forever.  I hope you got my card and my gift before you passed.  I loved being your Chemo Angel....you were the most inspirational woman I have ever met.  You lived your life for your husband and your kids and your life with them was your greatest pride and joy.  You fought like hell, you never gave up and you met each challenge with determination....and humor!  I loved "Blondie" and I loved your boots....and I loved you.

Rest in peace my friend.  Look for my dad up there in heaven.  I know he will keep you laughing...and he'll probably buy you a drink too!! (lol)

With Love, ((hugs)) and much admiration,
Jeanne

faithmtn said...

Free at last, free at last! Dear, sweet Kim is free of her suffering at last! Soar with the angels Kim!

To her loved ones left behind, she is always with you, watching over you. Love never dies and the bonds of love can not be broken. Let your loving memories of her help heal your sorrow. You're all in my prayers.

I know you're overwhelmed right now, but please think about making Kim's journal into a book for publication. Her life and writing could touch even more lives than it already has, and possibly save many lives too.

dwhee70041 said...

I am often at a loss for words at times like this.  Nothing seems to express the loss felt tonight.  Kim, you have been an inspiriation for all of us.  Your attitude has given us all a lesson.  May the good Lord welcome you to his kingdom, I know you are sitting there at his right hand.  Thank you for leaving us with your photo journal.  I have enjoyed sharing your shutters view of life.  I will continue to miss it.  May the Lord give your family support at this time.  God bless them all.

I wasn't a regular commenter or even reader, but Kim's strenth, love for her family and spirit grabbed my attention one day when I was searching for new journal friends..I am extremely sorry that I wasn't able to get to know such a strong and determined woman before the Angels came for her..
it is obvious that she will be greatly missed and not forgotten..

(((This message is for Little Jimmy and her whole family))))
I am so SORRY you lost such a HUGE part of your life!! Your Mom, your beautiful mom will be so missed. I Cry with you...There is no doubt in my mind that your mom never gave up fighting!! No doubt, that cancer was too strong!! I dont know why things happen like they do...I dont know why Jesus chose your mom so soon? What I do know is your mom now and forever will live inside each and everyone of you...Her strength and beauty...Her love for nature...Her creative strength and her intuitive ways....She was honest and brave...A part of your mom has touched my life forever!! Im a wildlife and nature photographer and I will be thinking of her as I am taking pictures of butteflies!! Your mom told me she loved butterflies! Your mom taught me so much...She taught me selflessness!! She worried about all of you...She fought hard to live even if it was for just one more day...She didnt want you to hurt...Last night I was reading again some of her journal and there is the one in early november about your hamster! And your mom spoke about you Little Jimmy and it just broke my heart!! You told her never to give up!!!  I know she didn't give up, the cancer and the chemo just hurt her body too much!! I know your mom will always be with you inside!!! Take care and God Be with you all of you....
Love Lisa (your moms fellow nature photographer from Maine)
I will miss you Kim!!! This world lost a Great Human Being!!

kellygib1@hotmail.com said...

hi,
i am Kim's sister. I just wanted everyone who has come into my sister's life through this sight THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. You will never know how much each and everyone of you meant to her. As you all know she was one hell of a person and gave her every thing in fighting this disease. I also believe in my heart that to all of you who gave her your blessings and your support also helped her in dealing with everything she was going through. I can't imagine what my life is going to be without her and not being able to talk, touch or ever see her again. She was a remarkable person and truly a hero in my eyes. She never, never gave up hope. Jim too will always have a special place in my life, he loved her so deeply and was by her side the whole way. My neices and my nephew mean the world to me and i will keep my promise to Kim in making sure they are taken care of. Please take this to heart when i say thank you for making my sister happy....she will always be in my thoughts and more in my heart. Kim was a beautiful person inside and out....and has touched alot of peoples lives with her kindness and her love for life..she is my inspiration and i will miss her more and more each day. Kim I love you and i hope your are at peace.

Love Kelly...

No one in J-land will ever forget your sister.  The link to her blog will always be on my blog.  I want everyone to know what a wonderful person I met.  Kim gave me so much inspiration and hope.  I care for my husband who has stage IV colon cancer and talking with your sister and reading her blog has truly helped me to see the other side of things.  Kim taught me how to be selfless.  

Kim always talked about how much she loved you and your Mom and brother.  She was so proud of all of you.  And of course, her kids and hubby were the sparkle in her eye.  We could all see that.  

Thank you for allowing us to be such a big part of Kim's life and death.  I will truly miss her with my whole heart.  I never met her face-to-face, but I seriously feel like I met an angel.  She will always have a place in my heart.

God Bless You,

Jamie

Kelly, my special thoughts are with you and you are in my prayers as I know how hard it was to lose your loving Sis Kim.  Kim meant the world to all of us, her great spirit through everything she was dealing with never took her sense of humor away or her determination to enjoy each day of her life.  Her love of Jim and her kids and her whole family was always foremost in her thoughts and words. Kim will always hold a special place in my heart, I'll never forget her. Through everything she was dealing with she always had all of us in J-Land laughing over what she said or had done....she was one very special Warrior and I believe, taught us all the importance of enjoying life.  Losing your Sis is not easy, I've been there with the passing of my Sis Elaine, but I find comfort in knowing she's at peace, all the special moments that I was blessed to share with my Sis are memories that I cherish always and on those days that hold special memories of Sis or other loved ones, I always light a candle and it helps. I know Kim went with peace in her heart knowing you'd be there for her kids and Jim. We loved our precious Kim and we're blessed to have been a part of her life. God bless all of her loving family.  Arlene (AJ)

Kim, the void you leave is heartfelt.  We are all so much the richer for knowing you.
I hope your example will reach an even wider audience, you gave so much, and your words could comfort and sustain many more.
You were very much loved.

***********UPDATED INFORMATION*************

Thank you for all the love, support and prayers.

I've been asked to post the following information.  There will not be a wake/funeral.  These are Kim's wishes.  There will be a Memorial Service on Saturday January 5, 2008 from 2 to 5 p.m. at:
Overman-Jones Funeral Home
309 Joliet Road
Plainfield  IL  60544

If there are any questions you may email me and I will try to help you.  Judy

ldybutterfly1128 said...

Can anyone please tell me what Kim's last name is?  For the life of me, I cannot remember it and I want to send flowers to the funeral home for her memorial.

Thank you for the help!

God Bless,

Jamie

spoiledmom220 said...

I will only say her last name begins with an "H".  Her sister told me that they will be the only family there that day so if you just put Kim H I'm sure they will go to the right place.

ceilisundancer said...

Jim, "buckhunter," Kelly, others who know and love Kimberleigh.  I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.  It tears me up, a woman I've never met in real life, but through her journal and the friendships she made, like some can make online, some of who she is, shines forth.  She certainly tried to fight this as hard as she could, out of her love for all of you.  One last Christmas.  And, now, she is no longer getting little blue bruises, or in pain, or tired.  May her spirit be at peace now, may in time her memory make you smile.  God be with you all during this difficult time.  Oh, FWIW, at this year's Race for the Cure, her name will be added to those I wear on my back.  -- Robin

I have been thinking of Kim and her family constantly for the past two days.  Although I have been a reader for years now, I still have been spending a lot of time going back through the archives and rereading it again.  She left behind so many of her thoughts and feelings and it is truly a gift for her friends and family.  There are some amazing dedications to her mother, to her children and her hubby.  There is no doubt that she was not only full of love, but she was able to let those around her see and feel that love.  She reminded us the importance of living life to it fullest, to love those around us, and to cherish all of our blessings.  I know since her passing I have had a different outlook on life, and I am not only going to cherish every second I get, I am also going to be sure to honor her memory by donating money to breast Cancer research and participating in walk for a cure relays, and being sure to be positive even when life throws me it's challenges. Kimberleigh was so easy to love and will be impossible to forget.  My thoughts are with all her loving friends and the family she adored. -Kelly

jamonit1963 said...

I remember when Kim moved into the house down the street from me. We were in 5TH grade. I remember she and Kelly got their hair cuts and Kim got a blue "detangle comb" (the one where the silver combs twirled) I think Kelly got a Yellow one, or maybe a pink one. We became fast friends. We grew up together, went hiking (we called it "exploring") We went garage sale-ing, we loved to make pranks, rode our bikes to our "summer homes" got in trouble for things we shouldn't have been doing among many, many other things. I was also with her when she had Amanda and with her when she went on her 1st date with Jim. Well, not actually on the date, at the house with her looking out the window when he pulled up. I remember it vividly. I moved to California and she always came to visit and brought her love and laughter with her. My friends there loved her as well by the time she left. We had an earthquake once while she was there. We had just gone to bed. She came out of the room freaking out. I was laughing and told her whatever you do, don't go outside. What did she do? Go outside. She was green and wanted to get on the next flight out. I think that was the only time I ever saw her afraid. We cracked up after words of course. We had so many laughs over our lifetime. We ALWAYS laughed. She used to call me her "touch stone" I have so many fond memories of us growing up together and remaining friends to this day 30 years later. I will miss you my friend! I know you know that. The thought of you not being in my life is heartbreaking. You have left an amazing impression in my life and on my heart. I love you very much and will always cherish your friendship. Always and forever! Godspeed. Love Jeff

I can't be the first to ask this: I would like to contribute to a fund in Kim's memory; give something back.  How can I do this?  By PayPal if possible, simple and quick.

heavenlybama said...

I would like to thank Judy & Kim's sister, Kelly for the updates.  I loved reading the story from Jeff.  Kim has been on my mind so much that I've been reading her archives since before I started reading her journal so I made a tribute to her in my journal.  Love u Kim!

My sincere condolences to you all .May God surround you all with his loving arms to ease the loss of one very vibrant , smart loving lady love Alison aka Nursey

kirkbyj05 said...

I remember how excited Kim was when she took the photo of Jim and her son as they were returning from fishing as the sun came down.  Their lantern and the sunset awed her.   It was a perfect day which should have lasted forever. It seemed as though it took her breath away as she saw the perfect moment between those she loved on earth and what heaven held for her.  I will always see that photo and remember her joy whilst she sat on shore watching them coming home again.
I never thought I was capable of saying this since I never met her but I loved her truly.
She was a funny and humerous personality but most of all she loved her family with even more heart and courage than she showed towards her enemy cancer.
She was such an admirable open spirit who accepted many people into her heart even though she was slowly succumbing to her rampaging enemy.
She made me thank God for my cancer not to have rampaged through my body as it did hers but also that 'There But For The Grace of God Went I.
She voiced everyone's hopes and fears because she was a true 'sister' to all of us.
Her heart was so big and encompassed us all.
I will carry her always in mine.
God Bless All Her family...she was a 'True Warrior'.

My love goes with her and to you all.
She was one very special lady for sure!
Goodbye 'My Beautiful Irish Eyes'.

My sympathy to the family.  What a great person she was with such a strong will and upbeat spirit and what a sense of humor and imagination.  Big hugs to all of you.  I'm floored at the number of comments.  She had quite a following here in J-land from the very beginning.  She will be missed terribly here in J-land as with her family and friends.

To the Family of Kimberleigh,

I regret that I didn't see this entry made on my Aol Journal by Kimerberleigh....until now.  I was so sad to read that Kimberleigh lost her fight with breat cancer, and my heart goes out to all of her family & friends.

Kimberly posted this the message below on my Aol Journal titled:  "That's where you will find....Me!  (Our Final Home ~ 10 Photos)"  I was so moved by her words that I wanted to share it with her family & friends.  Perhaps this posting was meant to be found at this later date.....as a sign....that Kimberleigh is reaching out to her loved ones....

My Condolences

I loved your tribute and the way you paid honor to your parents who are waiting on the otherside.

I am walking down that path myself not sure of what time have left, but I do know how I want to go out! lol I am to cremated, mixed with glitter and sparklies and to placed into red and pink and white baloons...(Do ya think the Party store can handle that???) and then I want my family and friends to take me to the happiest place i've been, which is a lake we go to all year round...and with silent prayers I want the wind to take me to all four corners of this beautful world and let me shine from the sky as my balloon caccoons explode.

I've never been one to sit still for very long and I want to keep on moving  even ater I'm gone.

I know I will be happier blower over the grounf then under the ground and that gives me peace, so I know it's what is perfect for me.

Kimberleigh

sunflowerkat321 said...

Kim left a little piece of herself behind with everyone who ever had the opportunity to read here.  What an incredible spirit she was.  Through this nightmare, she has been a beacon of inspiriation to so many.  I read here frequently just blown away by her strength and her attitude as she faced this heinous disease.  I will never forget her.

My heart and prayers are with her most beloved family.

ajquinn354 said...

Oh, our precious Kim sure had a wonderful way with words that touched all of our hearts....only Kim could bring a smile to my face on how she wanted to go out.  Not a doubt in my mind that Kim is sparkling in Heaven and bringing smiles to all those other Angels watching over her family and all of us.  Happy New Years says it all knowing our wonderful Kim. I'll never forget her, she brought her own sparkle to all of our hearts.  Arlene (AJ)

OH God, Kim, I am so sorry to hear of your passing. To your family, my deepest condolences. Kim was the reason I starting my journal on here. Someone referred her journal ot me when I was diagnosed. I was so glad, in a way to get to know her. I loved her wit and humor and honesty. Kim you will be truly, truly missed. Say hi to my son Evan up there and know all of us will never, never forget you!

angelicdiamond21@yahoo.com said...

To Kim's family......
My sympathy in the passing of Kim.  I did not know her but read a tribute to her in another J-Lander's journal.  Just wanted to stop by and leave my condolences.  She sure will be missed by many and I regret not getting to know her.  My prayers to your family.

To Kim's family,

I am so sorry to hear the news of her passing. I hope you all are able to access her journal and see how beloved Kimberleigh was to all of us here in J-land, too. She will be missed....and remembered lovingly....by all.

May she rest in peace.

Love,

swferstl said...

We just found out about Kim's passing. She touched me & my husband deeply. His previous wife passed away from breast cancer. He held out so much hope for Kim. We both did. We're both in tears.
Our love to all of you. We know it isn't an easy road to follow, but know that Kim was an inspiration to all of us. My recent mammogram came back scary. Kim emailed me to encourage me & said to let her know if I needed to talk about anything. She cared so much for so many. But especially for her family. We're so glad she had you & we know you're glad you had Kim.
Love,
Keith & Sherri F.

Kimberleigh was so easy to love and will be impossible to forget.
Kim's Irish strength and courage were so inspiring.
She loved Jim and her Children and her writings were so full of her personality and love for live and family
She loved her sister so much too. I sure it will be hard on you all.
I wish there were a words that heal, they don't. So I send you a hug.
I am so sorry for her Family and friends,
I send you all a hug from New England,

I am sorry I am so tardy in offering my heartfelt condolence to Kim's loving husband, Jim, Kim's dear children, family and friends. She was such a brave soul. I have enjoyed following her journal for years. J-land will never be the same without her. I am still in shock, as I know alot of her reader's are. I am keeping you all in my prayers. I was blessed to have known her thru her writing.

Rest now dear Kim.
God Bless,

britybrook said...

After learning of Kims passing I have spent the last few days browsing back through her older entries. Some made me laugh, more made me cry but every single entry touched my heart and soul and inspired me to want to be just like her. I have never met a single person who cared as much about her family as Kim. Melissa, Amanda, Rachel and Jimmy, your Momma couldnt have been any more prouder of her children. It was so evident in everything she wrote. And Jim, her true soulmate, all this is evident to anyone who read/s her journal. I hope that Kims family will leave this journal up for a very long time. Even though Kim is probably laughing and poking fun  at all the sappyness going on down here, I know that she wants people to learn from her journal. Several times over the last week I have been drawn to read or rerread something that she wrote. It's like an "owners manual" of life that everyone should read.  I hope neither I, or my daughters are ever diagnosed with breast cancer but if I were, Kims journal would be the first place that I would need to visit. To get her documented insight, to remind myself that I too, must fight.. Although I do not have breast cancer, Kim taught me about "LIFE" and how to actually LIVE it..  Kim, Your selfless and beautiful spirit has changed my life. Someday, sweet Kim, I will get the chance to say thank you.   Robin

jasonzavoda said...


Kim,

You're there, and it must be a much different place. Somewhere a long time ago, or a long way from here, or just across the thickness of a dream. I get the feeling though that words and thoughts and feelings reach you. You are no doubt busy, perhaps busy at play, maybe a child again in a second life.

It is a lonelier world without you here., Hearing what you wrote, having a picture of your life and your feelings, your fight and your journey, and... if someone reached out, you reached back.

You are missed.

What you have left for us here is amazing. I know that this journal is the result of an amazing women living an amazing life. I read it and see what you struggled with and what you kept in your life, and I hope that I can face a fraction of what you faced with a fraction of your grace and heart.

Where you are, take care of yourself.

Jason

Of all the people to get the short end of the stick you were not suppose to be one....

I believe somehow you still have a connection to this journal. As long as I can I will come back to say hey you......

You had the brightest light, that shone a beacon for us all to find our way.....Shine on dear one, shine on....(Hugs) Your silent sister.....

noodoors said...

Dearest J-land...
There has almost NOT been a day where I have not come here. Not just to read her words, so I can almost see her smiling...or not. Depending on the entry. Most of them smiles. As it was her nature to find humor in most things. But I mostly come to read the kind words left for her family. And her friends.  You all have said the same thing! Maybe not the same words. But they all mean the same. I miss her very much. We all do. And I know that YOU do too. I see it in your words. I feel it. I too checked the journal everday. Nothing from the 19th of November. And that was not making too much sense.
I hate seeing that her last words to all of you were....it sucks to be me right now...... I know that is how she was feeling at that particular moment. But your kind words, and well wishes, and prayers, and best of all, your feelings for {all of} OUR PINK WARRIOR leaves but a legacy.....and her famous closing......for she was truly blessed!

heavenlybama said...

(((Kim)))  I come here everyday to read your journal.  I started reading it from the beginning.  Still have a long way to go to finish.  I really miss you and your humor.  While reading, I laugh and cry cuz I'm laughing so hard at something so funny you wrote or I'm crying along with you when you're down which isn't very  often.  Love u and give my Mom a hug and send her my love.  You both are missed so much.
Love and hugs,

I was away from JLand for a while and today is the first I have heard of Kim's passing. When I logged on to catch up on journals and saw that she hadn't posted in so long, I think I knew. My heart is breaking right now. I was so lost in my own world and dealing with the anniversary of my own father's passing that I lost contact with Kim.

Jim and the rest of the family are in my prayers.

You will be greatly missed Kim. Rest in Peace Pink Warrior.

It's amazing proof of how deeply Kim touched us - and a fitting tribute to her - that so many still want to visit her journal. Words like legacy get thrown around a lot but in Kim's case it really applies. You haven't left us completely, Kim.

With fondness and respect,
Ben

Hey You...
Just me... It's a beautiful day today. The funny thing about today is that tomorrow they are expecting over 6 inches of snow! hey, hey Chicago! You would have written about today. Just as everyone is still writing about you. I want to share with those who did not meet you in person, but still feel as if they did. That it would feel the same.  It would have been the same feeling. That's who you were. The only difference is that we could squeeze ya when we wanted. Or kick ya in the ass if we felt it was needed! lol And you were just beautiful. Don't get me wrong. You were a pistol! :) All of us Brennan's are..... But beautiful you were. In life and in Death.
Missing You.......
