Words could never describe how Kim impacted my life. I so enjoyed our talks together when I would come to paint. I will be forever grateful to my Father God that He allowed me the privilege of meeting on of the most beautiful women, inside & out, that I have ever known. To Mark, children & family, you're in my thoughts and prayers!

Isn't it interesting the way one "knows" without being told. How very thoughtful and considerate of you, Mark, to keep us all informed - thank you. May God's grace surround you and your family and His strength and comfort fill you to overflowing in the days to come. We love you. Blanche & Jerry

Mark, Oliver, Jackson, Lehman, and Mary-Claire, I am praying that God comforts each of you during this difficult time. I wish I could be there with you because you have all been like family to me over the years of keeping the kids. Kim was an absolutely amazing person, who always had wonderful words of wisdom and Godly advice and I know she is now watching over each of us from Heaven. Love in Christ, Gretchen

Thank you for the information, Mark. Today I heard the song "Walking her home" by Mark Schultz and I thought about you and Kim and what a wonderful husband you have been to her. She was blessed to be your wife and your children have seen a beautiful example of the way Christ loves us. Still praying for each of you. Tara F.

We have followed the blog for many months, always hoping and praying for a different outcome for Kim, for you and for the kids. But Kim was right, there is a bigger plan for her. I know that Christ lives larger in the lives of those that she touched because of her courage and her faith. Lynda & Mike

The McNabb and Green Families:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I was informed of Kim's death. I remember so many times of having fun and visiting with her at school and church. She was always one to make the day more pleasant. I also know that her great faith was a pillar of support to her family and the people around her.
My prayers are for your peace and God's comfort in these times.

The McNabb & Green Families:

I met Kim when she & I worked together in Social/Activities. She, for a short time, was like a daughter to me, but always a friend. I have a 'heart-shaped' candy dish given to me by Kim & her parents for Christmas and I kept that dish on my desk until I retired. I will always cherish the memories we have and will forever hold you all in my prayers. She will be greatly missed, but was needed more in heaven. Jane Miller

Dear McNabb family,
I was friends with Kim when I lived in Jonesboro about 6 years ago. She was one of the first people to welcome me to Jonesboro. I joined the same Bible study she attended at the Methodist church and I was awed by her great faith. The one thing I remember about her was her smile. I can still see it even though it has been 6 years since I last saw her. I pray for your family that God's supernatural strength will help you through this difficult time. Kim has a "legacy" that will endure much longer than this "natural life" on earth. Shelley Chumley, Little Rock, AR

Heaven is a much better place now that Kim is there and we can all look forward to her greeting us with that wonderful big smile someday. Vic, Mary, Karen, Mark and all 4 children are special because God chose you to share in her extraordinary life. She loved you more deeply than you'll ever know. Hugs to each of you. Know that you are in our prayers. The Olvey family: Netia, Bob & Rob

Dear Mark and family,
I don't know you and didn't know your sweet Kim, but I noticed her picture in the newspaper this morning and that she was a PEO and Chi Omega. Because I am also a member of those two, I looked up her blog. I have read all the way through back to January 2006. Oh my goodness, what a wonderful woman she was and how many lives she has touched. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Your Kim will live on in the hearts of many. Sincerely, Kim from Arkadelphia.

As I woke yesterday morning getting ready for work and preparing breakfast for my son, I opened the paper as I do every morning to read mostly about news that means nothing to me at the time. I usually read the obituary page just to see if there is someone I know. My heart began to pound heavy and "Oh my goodness" came along with the tears. My dear friend Kim had gone to see the Lord. I had not seen Kim in a few years but I knew her for a very long time. My father is a Methodist preacher in Marion Ar and Kim and I attended many church youth assemblies together. It really hit hard for me since she and I were the same age.
My heart is still aching this morning for you the family, who I did not know well, Mark and the kids, but I can not imagine what the struggle has been like for all of you. She will be greatly missed on this earth but I do know in Heaven she is waiting to greet all of us whom she came in contact with all those years ago at Hendrix College and CCYM. She holds a special place in my heart because she is a part of the preacher kids family!! God Bless you all and please tell her mother and dad how sorry we are about the loss.

This is Kelly Wilkins, formerly Kelly Robertson from Beebe- Clark's sister. I just received an email about Kim's death through my High School Class group email. I am so terribly sorry to hear this. I will pass this information along to my brother. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

As I was looking at the McNabb's website that my mother sent to me, I noticed a name that stood out to me, and it was Kim's name. We were in junior high and high school, graduating together in '85. Kim was a wonderful person even way back then, always cheerful, smiling, and fun to be around. I am very sorry the loss of such a shining example of a good Christian upon this Earth. God only knows the reason for this great loss, but she will be remembered and missed always. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mark, and your children, of losing Kim from your lives. God bless you all.
