Happy birthday mom! I miss you so much. If I were to put it in words how much I missed you it would have to sound extreme because it is. can't really understand that it's been almost 4 years since I saw you and even longer since you were well. Being without you for one day was .... and being without you for hundreds of days (today is 1400) ... it's not easy yet. But I think of you every day and when I'm really lucky I dream about you sometimes. I love you more than I ever knew while you were alive! I love you more every day! I look forward to being with you again someday. Thank you for all of the blessings you gave me. I know you are protecting me even right now and that gives me strength and vibrance. I love you, I love you, I love you.

What do I say about one of my best friends from childhood? So many wonderful memories were made with you. Sleeping at your house and getting yelled at for giggling. Bike riding around the hill, hoping your brakes worked as you rode down the hill into town to buy a  5 or 10 cent candy bar. Finding the perfect spot to picnic while eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and picking bouquets of wild flower #weeds for our moms, playing board games and twister and roller skating in your basement, catching fire flies on summer nights and playing neighborhood hide and seek. You live on in my heart dear friend.

I knew Kim from Holland High Tennis matches, when Avery and my son Derek were doubles partners. (2013) I kept her notice in my papers and have been meaning to send my thoughts to Avery and the family. Finally , today is the day. I was greatly saddened to see the notice in the paper. I always enjoyed talking and visiting with Kim at the tennis meets and she was a calming presence when I was getting a wee bit too crazy over a missed shot . My thoughts and prayers continue to be with Avery and the family. I know she is missed .

Knew Kim for about 20 years-ish, loved her, confided in her, we supported each other with our friendship. Like most things in life, we made time for phone calls, but we were busy (mostly I, with work and family) and didn't spend time going out.. Like most things in life, you always wish you would have... now we can't. She lived two blocks away, drive past her house several times a week, before she got sick I'd see her in the yard, pull over and we'd talk, occasionally walk down and hang out.. when she got sick, I'd drive past her house and look up at her window and wonder what her day was like, now I drive past and think of an empty room with sorrow. So they say time heals, I'm sure ..maybe, but for now I wish you were here.. I still love you, still want to call, and still look up at your window.. still want to share my day, ask how yours is going, ask how nuts Doug is making you ;-) , ask your advice or opinions, share family stories, and talk...

As Kim's sister, I knew her for 60 years. We had a great childhood living in a small friendly town. Kim was 5 years younger so we didn't share the same friends growing up. We became close as we had children and even closer as we dealt with our father's death together in 2010. Since that time we called each other nearly every day and just talked about how our day was going and what we did. I already feel the pain of not being able to share my day with her and hear about her day. Kim was smart and often helped me with crosswords when I got stuck. She always knew the answer. I admire her devotion to her family and her work and I'll never forget the sweet spirit she had dealing with her illness. Forever I will love and miss you Kim

Kim was my daughter-in-law and the mother of my grandchildren Cody, Hilary and Avery. She did an exceptional job raising them. With her easy wit, knowing smile and gentle way of listening, she taught us all independence and the arts of helping and sharing. Her lifelong skilled nursing work eased the pain of her many patients, regardless of their illness, situation or ability to pay.
From the day we met it was clear to me that she was the ideal life partner for my son Doug. She was there for him through the many stages of his career development, first building and designing boats, then car interiors for several manufacturers. It was a long and sometimes difficult path, but Kim was there for Doug at every stage, while simultaneously managing their home and three children. 
She came to New York a couple of years ago and helped me greatly in organizing my move from Bayside to Manhattan after I married Hester Diamond. 
Our last time together was during July last year, when she accompanied the family for a visit to the OshKosh Airventure Exhibition. It was a happy week for us all, although we realized later it must have been painful for her as she was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (brain cancer stage 4) within a week after returning home to Holland. 
Kim touched and improved the lives of so many people. She kept her friendships alive from childhood, visiting Fort Plain, NY as often as possible. 
I will miss her keenly as will a host of others.

Kim was on one of my oldest and dearest friends. My last name then was Curnan and Kim and I spent countless hours playing on "the Hill" at each others homes, playing Barbies, trolls, boardgames like Operation and Trouble, creating cakes in an easy bake oven and playing dress up to name a few. In the summer we would play in her basement or in my attic. We rode bikes and often met at the mailbox - our designated 1/2 way mark between our homes. We even became brave enough to skateboard down the hill near her house which at the time felt monumental. We would often take a shortcut downtown via the Indian trails and buy a 10 cent candy bar or just browse around the 5 and $.10 store. I learned many of my friendship skills from Kim. She was kind and always a lot of fun. I remember giggling and laughing with her as we would create some activity out of boredom or dance as we played records, run into each other as we raced to catch fireflies or yell, "tag your it" while playing hide and seek. We also tended to visit the "old ladies" on the hill. They invited us is to hear their stories, which we actually enjoyed and then served us cookies from their cookie jar. No one can ever replace those first childhood friends and the precious childhood memories that stay forever in your heart. Kim will forever be securely attached to my heart and some of my fondest childhood memories. Rest In Peace my very dear friend until we meet again. Love, Lanny

Kim and I met when we were both 18 years old and living on the second floor of Kollen Hall. We saw each other infrequently after college, but Kim was always willing to make time to get together when I was in town. Kim was always thoughtful to her friends. I was pretty quiet back in the college days and Kim’s wit was unpredictable and often caught me off guard. But it was all in fun.  Many laughs were shared, as were many confidences. We shared friends and experiences: gatherings to watch SNL, our pot luck suppers which were a relief from the usual campus food, playing cards and just hanging out. I’m glad that memories of college will always include fond memories of Kim. Thoughts and prayers to Kim's family. She will be missed very much.

Kim was a devoted wife and mother, a good sister and sister-in-law and loyal friend. She was there when those near her needed her and one of her greatest legacies is her family. I will miss her, as will we all.

I met Kim at a party in college. A fellow New Yorker, we became instant friends. She was a great euchre partner. We both loved Heineken and she always removed the labels. She said she was going to wallpaper a room someday. Lol. She had an infectious smile, was generous, and caring. I will miss her everyday. I'm keeping her husband and children in my prayers.

Today I've been remembering all of the times my mom loaded up the van with me and all of my friends, and how she would ruthlessly embarrass me but we would be laughing to no end. she was a presence always, had acute listening skills I hardly appreciated until now. She did her best to bring the best out in everyone she loved. Mom, thank you for being inclusive, present, and yourself.

To the Wilson family, who I do not know, I am deeply sorry for your loss. This is heartbreaking. Kim is a loss for all of us.

I am a friend from early days, as early as kindergarten perhaps. We *may* have been in classes together as early as that, but I know for sure we started our friendship in the 4th or 5th grade. I was a country kid, she was a city kid. We shared a lot of great experiences with a great bunch of friends, very often on Prospect Hill, or at Connies, or other places in and around Fort Plain NY. I specifically remember swimming together in the Smith pool many times, trick or treating on the Hill, listening to Dark Side of the Moon for the first time, school dances, trading other new music, Church Youth Group and many other activities. Unfortunately I moved away before my High School junior year and we didn't see each other much after then.

We reconnected briefly at our 35th HS reunion and reconnected for a brief while. I am so glad we were able to do so. I will always remember her as the bright, bold, loving person that she was.

Kim My beloved Friend Forever

July 3, 2017

Kim and I grew up as friends in Fort Plain. Kim was always a devoted unopionionated, caring person and friend of the family. We shared many fun filled times together and shared many experiences. Kim was loved by my Family as well. Kim work in high school for my mother at "Connies Restaurant" giving me freedom from work one weekend night everyweek . We spent a fun filled summer with her fathers work in Peurto Rico in 1972  and came back brown as bears. Wordly, Loving, Caring and unselfish Kim will always be close to my heart. Rest in peace until we meet again.
