Kim's Prayer

"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." --2 Corinthians 4:8-9

The Blog is now a Book

Kim wanted to see her blog turned into a book for her kids. At nights while I was at the hospital with her, I converted it into a book that you can now purchase here.

It was therapy for me, and she did have time to write the dedication to her children.

Twenty dollars will go to the two memorials she chose with every book purchased. As publisher, I receive a quantity discount starting with orders over 12 books, so if you may be interested in a larger order, please contact me at the email address listed on Kim's storefront.

Thank you, and God Bless.

Mark and the kids.

Kim's Arrangements

Funeral services will be held at the First United Methodist Church Sanctuary in Jonesboro, on Friday, September 21st, at 4 p.m.

Kim would like you to consider memorials to two organizations that were close to her heart, and will be instrumental in helping to continue to raise our children, as well as many other children, in the Christian faith:

The Ridgefield Christian School Building Fund

The Youth and Music Ministry programs of the
First United Methodist Church in Jonesboro
801 S. Main, Jonesboro, AR 72401

I love you, forever

(Kim passed away this day at 4:53 am. Kim could tell through the night some days ago that things had taken a turn for the worse, and dictated this last blog entry to me so that it could be published upon her passing).

There are no words that could ever convey the heartfelt love and kindness that you've shown me and my family through this and how much I appreciate it. Every prayer, every card, every note and every blog posting was a blessing to me. I know I will not be in pain anymore because I choose to trust the Man that gave his life for me and I know I've played a small part in God's plan.

I've been thinking for some time now, with all the events around the world that seem to point to the end times, that Jesus has called me a little ahead of the crowd to prepare me as a greeter for Heaven. I'll be a natural with my Flight Attendant skills.

I want each of you to know, that even though we all prayed for a different outcome, God's Word never failed me. I was always reminded that even Jesus prayed that 'this cup would pass,' and it did not.

For that, we are ALL Saved. And I pray I see all of you soon.

With all my love,
