I was so blessed to have such a wonderful Mother in Law in LaVerne. We got together every Tuesday night for dinner and cards and walked to St. Martini on Sunday mornings. You were truly one of the finest people I have ever known and you will truly be missed. It has been years since I heard your voice but it will always be in my memories. It is with heavy heart that I heard of your passing. Rest in peace LaVerne, and thanks for sharing the 10 years as my Mother in Law,,,,

I was so blessed to have the opportunity to love your mom, Kimmy, and for her to love me back. Thank you for sharing her with me. Rest in peace Mom…we will miss you.

What a beautiful tribute to your mom!! I’m so sorry for your loss Kimmy! Please know that I’m here if you need anything (even though I know you won’t ask). You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

Mom . . . You helped shape me into the woman I am today, and for that I am grateful. I will never forget your patience, endless energy and work ethic; your willingness to help, even when your plate was full; your smile; your laugh and the mischievous way you often tackled life; the amazing drawings you made on my “owies” with mercurochrome; and for your love of all things sweet. I will always remember . . . to not be afraid of tools, or paint, or working hard . . . you need to know how to change your own bike tire, and you always clean up grass clippings; there is no such thing as too much lemon in a lemon meringue pie; and if you don’t have time to do it right the first time, how will you find time to do it again.

Thank you for making all my favorites on my birthday, even if it was the only time my palette was addressed; for making sure all of my uniforms were clean and ready; for your love of baking; and for being the tough ol’ broad I certainly hope to become. God only knows what I’d be without you. You are already missed. Rest in peace.
With all my love, Kimmy
