"Dear Brenda, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as the first year anniversary of KIm's death is upon you. Although I only knew KIm for a short period of time I feel blessed. As a nurse working with ALS clients I often think of both of you and remember the love, dedication and dignity shown to KIm by you as he dealt with this difficult disease. Wishing for you fond memories that help you journey through your grief."

"We were blessed to know Pastor Kim, he answered the call by God to come to Point Pleasant Baptist Church to undertake the call of interm pastor.
He came to us and was with us for about 21/2 years .
He was a great listener and we had great confidence in his leadership style. He took this job very seriously and helped us in so many ways. His gentle mannerism and caring for our congregation was second to none. We at Point Pleasant Baptist are better in our faith today because he cared and was called to lead us.God bless his family at this time of sorrow. Pastor Kim we thank you for being there for us. God bless you"

"Kim was person after my own heart. I appreciated his reaching out to me when I was new in the community. We had a common background (graduate of Northern Seminary) and emphasis in ministry. Kim was a great guy and I miss him very much."

"I just learned of Kim's passing   My memories of Kim are also of a loving kind gentle man of God.  Brenda and Kim are 2 of the most precious people I  was ever around.   I last saw you in 1985 when you came home for Mother's funeral. Miles, busy schedules and lives do get in the way  but never took you out of my heart.  Much much love  Aunt Bea"

"Dear Brenda and family, Not having known, or it slipped from my thoughts, that Kim was struggling with ALS, it was a surprise to hear of the death of his body. His spirit is still shining, probably brighter now. I remember that - other than loving having you live with us as you looked for a home of your own upon arriving in St Louis - I remember the wonderful advice Kim gave me as I struggled to find time for church responsibilities while keeping up with a young family. His advice: "there will be a time when it's right. It is a mission to minister to your own family, as you are right now." Wow! The ''ought-to's" vanished. The guilt turned to strength. The time DID come to serve more widely. And I did serve - matter-of-fact, other than when he was trying out Skype and called me to chat, we met at one of the Conventions. Thanks for everything, Kim. Love to Brenda, Brian and Heather."

"I am so fortunate to have had Kim and Brenda in my life as a teen.  Kim spent many hours listening to my heart pour out its sorrows and reflect back to me God's love.  I'm thankful for his time at Second Baptist in St. Louis and consider him a major influence in my life.

Thank you, Kim, for showing me the face of God so many times in my youth."

"It's an honor to leave my deepest sympathies to the family of Pastor Kim. He was a man of God with so much love for God's people. It was always a pleasure to talk with Pastor Kim. I am the administrative secretary at Siloam Baptist Church and many time through Calvary and the Hospitality Center I witness his demonstration of Jesus Love in all that he did. He inspirited us all to go the extra mile to be a blessing to others. May these memories spur us on in Jesus Name. Yvonne Massie"

"The first thing I noticed about him was the strength of his handshake (until ALS took his strength).  When I first met him, I thought I had healed from a minor stress fracture on my right hand and I’m convinced it rebroke!  He was so kind and soft-spoken.  He was a phenomenal listener and when he did speak, he was always teaching.  He taught me how to drive stick shift.  Dad drove me to Methacton High School and we switched seats.  He proceeded to talk to me for about twenty minutes about how a stick shift works, how you drive one, etc.  I was pretty impatient, but I listened carefully.  He was so detailed, methodical, and clear in his description that when he finally told me to start driving, it felt like I had been driving stick shift for years.  I cruised around the parking lot without stalling and even drove us home that night without incident.  It was really amazing and I know it was all because of him.  He was such a peaceful person that seemed to disintegrate any stress you were feeling when you were with him.  My other favorite memory Dad was shortly after Heather and I moved to PA after I had been in NC for eight years.  One thing that always bothered me was my distance from family.  I missed seeing my parents and it was always difficult.  Moving to PA was something that I had mixed emotions about.  We were going to be six hours away from my family instead of eight and a half hours, so that was good.  We were going to be fifteen minutes away from Heather’s family instead of six hours, so that was a definite bonus.  Although, I have to admit, that did make me a little jealous early on.  Until one day, within the first couple of weeks of us moving to PA Heather and I were walking around the King of Prussia Mall.  We saw Dad, called him on his cell phone and told him to turn around where we were standing.  We talked to him for a few minutes and then went to lunch.  It was in that moment that I had this tremendous feeling of home I hadn’t felt in over eight years.  That was something Dad gave to me."

"To the family of Pastor Kim,

I came to know Kim through volunteer work I and our company PJM perform periodically at Norristown Ministries. There are people that come into one's life and leave imprints of all types. I will forever remember Kim's model professional behavior and his ever postive kindess towards others. Kim never complained about what the physical environment could not provide, yet focused on what he could improve with limited resources. Kim was a positive thinking, extremely dedicated, compassionate, and  gentle individual. I consider myself fortunate to have known him. Know, that I try to model his compassion in each day of my life as a tribute to his imprint on me.      

Our sympathies to you all during this time of his passing"

"Dear-  Brenda and Family-  We are keeping you in our prayers.  Kim was the one who helped to bring a group of us together as the Family Systems group which began in the late 1990's.  His quiet input into our study of family systems helped us gain new insights for all who attended.  His input and his presence will be missed.

Dave and Colleen Ludeker"
