Iâ€™m so sorry to hear of Kimâ€™s passing. I have such good memories of her from FCKNS while all 4 of my babies attended there. She was a character for sure. Love to you all and to Ms. Peggy from the Hatleys.
Peggy, Shannon, Ashley, Mark, my thoughts & prayers are with you.
Kim touched so many lives. She will be missed. May the Spirit bless you with fond memories.
Our family is so sorry to hear of Kim's sudden passing. Our memories of her at First Christian are so sweet and dear. She loved on our boys and all the others at FC so well. I remember her as fiercely protective of all her "babies" and with the tenderest heart for each of them. She will be missed and well remembered. We are praying for Peggy and Shannon and the rest of the family as you all grieve. With love, the Redings

My condolences to Ms. Peggy and family. I feel honored to have known and worked with Kim at First Christian Preschool. We had some great times that I will always cherish. Love, hugs and prayers for this sweet family.

Words cannot describe how sorry we are for your loss.Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Kim was a wonderful soul, so devoted to 1st Christian for many years. What I remember most was how funny she was. She often would hide a rubber snake in Peggy's desk drawer, trying to get her mom to scream. Once, there was a dead bird on the playground and while I was disposing of it, Kim BEGGED me to put it in Peggy's drawer. She will be missed.
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Kim. I worked with her and Peggy at the preschool and she was always full of laughter. She could always calm the kids. I remember her taking one little toddler around with her all day long for weeks until the toddler felt comfortable being at the school. She had such dedication. My heart goes out to the family.
We are so sorry for your loss. We have so many fond memories of Kim at First Christian. Sending love and prayers your way.
Shannon, we all here at Crews have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
