Kim's favorite place and time in her life was being at their land in Pine Creek and camping with her family. Her family was so important to herTim was her rock and her children were her spirit. The connections she had with her friends and co-workers were present throughout her life. Kim was a proud Packer fan and she treasured her trips to Hawaii and the Grand Canyon.
