I saw all of you at the fair tonight and I just smiled because Kim would want her babies to go the the fair! She enjoyed life, embraced every moment and always put Jesus first. She was so proud of all of you and we are too! May the memories of your loving mom live on in your hearts forever.
All our love,
The Orr family

Dear Oliver, Jackson, Lehman and Maryclair,
One day I was visiting with your Mom at NEA Clinic and Maryclair was with her. I commented to her she had a sweet helper that day and she quickly responded that she had four very special helpers. Your Mom was very proud of each of you. You have been blessed with a very special Mom and now you will be blessed with a very special Guardian Angel.

Blessings,
A friend

Dear Kids, I have known both your mom and dad since they were kids.. a really long time. Your mom always had the greatest attitude and a smile for everyone she met. And even through the tough times that never changed. Your dad is a very special person and you will all need to help him a lot in the future. I know you will think of your Momma every day and when you do she will live in your heart forever. I have a special place in my heart for remembering everyone in your family with love. Each one of you were a shining star in your mom's life and she will always love you.
God bless you everyone. An old teacher and friend.

Kim's Family,
I have known your dad and mom's family for many years. I have read your blogs for some time and have kept all of you in my prayers. Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us to trust Him and He will direct our paths. I just know He has those special paths planned for all of you.

Friends of Kim
There will be a wake(a watch kept for the deceased through the night before the funeral)for Kim in the Chapel of First United Methodist Church. Volunteers will stay at the Chapel and pray and be with the body of Kim.
The hours for the Wake will begin Thursday night at 9 pm and run through Friday at 2 pm. The Chapel entrance on Main Street will be used to access the chapel during the evening hours. You can sign up for an hour or two by calling Carol Bishop at home (935-4375) or cell (974-1304) or by email tombishop@suddenlink.net

Dearest Oliver, Jackson, Lehman,and Mary Claire:
Your mom and dad were so very lucky to have had four such wonderful, loving children. I want each of you to stop every day and feel the arms of both God and your mom around you. I've known your families in Pocahontas since long before you were even thought of, and I know how very proud of you they all must be. Jesus must be so happy to be sharing Heaven with your mom now, and she must be so happy to finally meet Him. Remember that you can still talk to her, and believe that she will hear every word. Love and take care of your dad and each other, and know that God continues to bless you all every moment of every day. My prayers will be with you always. Judy Reid

Dear Oliver, Jackson, Lehman, and Mary Claire:
I want to share with you something that you may already know. Your mother was one of the funniest people on this earth. She could make anyone smile and her laugh could be heard through a crowd. People felt better by just being around her. One time she and I took a trip to Fayetteville with Mr and Mrs White. They stopped at a McDonalds for us to get food but they had their own and told us no worries they would share but if we want McDs to go on in. Your mom and I went in, waited 10 minutes for food, and finally sat down. As we were sitting down, the Whites came in and said, "Ready to go?" Your mother without missing a beat, puts her entire tray up to her mouth and slides a tray of fries into her mouth. (literally a box of fries) I lost it and coke came out of nose. We sat there and laughed it seemed for ever. Needless to say the Whites never asked us on another road trip. I loved your mom. She and your aunt are dear friends and we love them greatly. Your daddy is very special to. Please give him hugs as needed and talk to your mom often. She is listening. Much love, Chris Williams

Dear Kids,
I knew your mom before she married your daddy but hadn't seen her since the wedding. I can remember when she became a flight attendant & I know her loving spirit helped those who were afraid to fly, like me!! Your grandfather tried to take me in his plane but I was too scared! God placed the Green family in my life long ago & I have been blessed ever since. Your entire family are angels on earth to show us mortals God's love & light & to help us keep the faith. The torch has been turned over to you & I know Kim taught each of you well. Thank you for sharing the journey with folks you don't even know. Because you shared many people have been added to God's roll book. Kim will continue to live through all of you. Much love, Gloria Pruitt, Beebe

Dear family,
I knew Kim thru PEO before I moved to the afternoon chapter. I did not know her well, but I loved being around her. I was in a wheelchair at the time, & she treated me so kindly. I also knew her thru church, and have always known she had so much faith and love for others. She was a wonderful example of a Christian, & I am assured she now in heaven in a beautiful place and free of pain. Remember to celebrate her life.
Love to all of you,

I have never had the pleasure of meeting you but I did get to meet your Mom on our first day of college. What a blessing she was to me. I hope you can see through this blog how loved she was by many. I will never forget her. She is your gaurdian angel now and she left such a legacy of love for you. Even though you don't know me, I will always pray for you and if there is ever anything I can do for you-I am only a phone call away! God bless you!

Today was the first time I saw a story on Kim. Sorry it took the worst to catch my eye. But I have sense been on every post she made.Even thou I never knew her the story touches me even more than you know. I have a friend Tina who is a 44yr old widowed mother, of one 13yr old son, (his father died in a car wreck several years back) Tina is battling breast cancer. She also developed her cancer in late 2005, early 2006 she went through Chemo and was told she was cancer free, until March of 2007. Dr Scoggins was hoping he could help Tina, but she had done developed 22 tumors in her brain, several in her lungs, and liver. So the trip to Houston was canceled. It is only a matter of time for her. She is down to 83 pounds. But a small package of dynomite, she is still not giving up. Like the Equator lady, all things possible with God. Please take my deepest sympathy for your family. The ones left behind to hurt and miss such a beautiful, sprited, lady. Kim is in a peaceful, painless place, safe in the hands of the Lord. I hope when God see fit to take Tina out of the painful life she is in now, they can meet in heaven I know they would have much in common. Grace, beauty, and thier angel wings. God Bless You All!!!!

Your mom is watching from up above and is probably wearing that beautiful smile of hers thinking how proud she is of all of you tonight and knowing that you will be loved and cared for by many.

You are all a precious legacy that she leaves for the rest of us to cherish.

Dear Mark, Oliver, Jackson, Lehman, Mary Claire, and all of the McNabbs and Greens;
the following is a passage in which we hope you will take comfort:

"I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze,
and starts out for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength,
And I stand to watch her
Until at length she is only a ribbon of white cloud
Just above where the sea and sky meet and mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says,
"There! She's gone!"

Gone where?
Gone from my sight - that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
As when she left my side,
And just as able to bear her load of living freight
To the place of her destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says,
"There! She is gone!"
there are other eyes watching for her coming
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout,
"There! She comes!"

And that is dying.


(-author unknown)

We love you all. Love, Donald, Malka, Maggie, Molly, Edward and William Ivy

You are such an amazing man. I am in awe of how you have handled everything you have been dealt over the last three years. Your love and support as a husband is a wonderful thing. You are very strong. You are very faithful. I know God is so proud of you. I thank God that your precious kids have you for a Daddy. I am so sorry about your terrible loss. I know how dear Kim is to you. I know your heart is broken. I pray that it will be restored, little by little each day and I pray that you will feel the Holy Spirit's presence in your life daily. I pray you will find peace and comfort and joy, even in these sad days.

With love,

"A Journey About Mothers"
The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said, "Yes,and the way is hard you will be tired before you reach the end of it."
But the end will be better than the beginning. The young mother was happy, and she could not believe that anything could be better than these years.
So she played with her children, she fed them, bathed them, and taught them to tie their shoe laces. They learned to do homework and brush their teeth. The bright sun shone on them and the young mother cried,"nothing will ever be lovelier than this."
The morning came and there was a hill ahead. The children climbed and grew weary,and the mother was weary too. But at all times, she said to the children,"a little patience and we are there." So the children climbed. As they climbed, she taught them to weather the storms of life and with this, gave them the strength to face the world. Year after year, she showed them compassion, understanding, hope, but most of all.....Unconditional love. When they reached the top they said, "mother we could not have done it without you."
The days went on, the weeks, the months and the years. The mother grew tired and she became weak and bent. But her children were tall and strong and walked with courage. And the mother, when she lay down at night, looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last for my children have learned so much and can now pass these traits on to their children."
In the days ahead, when the way became rough for her, they lifted her spirits and gave her strength, just as she had given them hers.
One day they came to a hill, beyond the hill, they could see a shining road and a golden gate flung open. The mother said, "I have reached the end of my journey and now I know that the end is better than the beginning. My children can walk with dignity and pride with their heads held high, and so can their children after them."
The children said, " You will always walk with us, mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her go. They said,
"we cannot see her, but she is with us still. A mother like ours is more than a memory, she is a living presence."

Oliver, Lehman, Jackson and Mary Claire,
Your mother is always with you. She is the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street.
She is the smell of certain foods that you remember, flowers that you pick and the perfume that she wore. She is the cool hand on your brow when you're not feeling well. She is the breath in the air on a cold winters day. She is the sound of the rain late at night. Your mother lives inside your laughter, and she is crystalized in every teardrop.
A mother shows every emotion. Happiness, sadness, fear, love, hate and anger, helplessness, excitement, joy, sorrow, and all the while hoping and praying you will only know the good in life. She is the place you came from, your first home, and she is the map that you will follow with every step you take.
She is your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but NOTHING on earth can separate you. Not time, not space, not even death.
Your mothers love is never ending.

Kiddos and your entire family – I am so sorry for your loss. I went to high school with Kim and it’s like Chris Williams said in an earlier post – she was always laughing and smiling and that’s how I’ll always remember her. In addition to her genuine and sweet personality, there are so many thoughts that come to mind when thinking of your Mom. One thing that keeps popping into my mind was her penchant for commercial catch-phrases – Every time I see a box of Nutri-Grain cereal bars I think of her and 10th grade English class because she quite often raised both of her arms up into the air – think of the touchdown signal – and shouted out “Nutri-Grain!” – like the commercial. There was also the popular Wendy’s Hamburgers commercial back then with these older women asking “Where’s the Beef?” and I can also remember her asking that at unexpected moments. You know, I doubt anyone has to tell you guys how very special she was – because she was after all, your Mom. But the thing that has to come to my mind in recent weeks and months of thinking and praying for all of you – is that above all – Kim was an original. She wasn’t perfect, but she was perfectly and always herself. And she always had a unique “Kim way” of looking at things. When I read that she thought God needed her to help greet people into Heaven, I couldn’t help but think only Kim would come up with that and that how very true it probably is. It makes perfect sense. And we'll all be happy to see her there someday. It is amazing how many people she touched in her short life. I think Kim really lived and loved her life and others can’t help but admire that in a person. In a conversation I had with Troy recently, he said Kim had told him that she wouldn’t trade her life with anyone – and that really says it all. Your entire family will remain in my thoughts and prayers. With Love, Wendy Reeves

Dear sweet McNabbs, Greens, and Blasingames,

What an incredible service of celebration of Kim's life! What joy, what sorrow, what fellowship, all at the same time. Truly a revival.

Kim loved extravagantly - she loved her God, her family, her friends, her church, her neighbors, her "blogosphere", anyone and everyone. Tonight we had a chance to try to give some of that love back, but what we received was the incredible presence of God. Just as Kim wanted.

We send you our love and prayers, but also hope to send a casserole or carpool or anything else you need (a ride to Tanako, maybe?). When things get tough, please remember the love you felt tonight, and know that we are here for you and our prayers continue.

We serve an everlasting God!

I went to school with Kim, and remember her innocently sassy wit that was loved by everyone. We had Spanish class together, and one day, well, probably every day, she was lingering in the doorway laughing and talking with Benny. Mrs. Howell asked her to close the door before she took her seat. Kim said, "Is that a hint?" This was so funny that it became a catch phrase. Before Homecoming, for spirit week, we would have theme days, and, on "punk day," everyone was wearing bandannas tied around their necks. Kim announced, "I want it to be cowboy day!" She then pulled her bandanna up over her face like a bandit getting ready to rob a train. She wore it like for the rest of class, and, possibly, the rest of the day. When she was in the running for Homecoming queen, people, even freshmen who didn't know her very well at all, were voting for her 2, 3, 4 times. It was a minor discussion that people should only vote once. But it didn't matter, it was Kim - she was supposed to win and everyone knew it. I pretty much just knew who Kim was; I had class with her, but didn't hang out with her. But that was the remarkable thing about her - she wasn't one of those people you had to get to know. If you saw her in a room talking with friends, at a football game cheering, in class with a bandanna on her face saying "Hola and Si," you knew her. You knew she was somebody unique. And I know she will be greatly missed.

The service was so beautiful as so was Kim. We will always be reminded of Kim through her children. I see Kim in each one of them.
Everytime I ran into Kim was at a bufffet with her children or at the mall. She always was smiling and so happy. Kim would want everyone including her family to be happy with life and be joyful. I pray for this for the children and her family.

It was such an honor to be part of your mom's life, even in a small way. She is a role model for me as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and Christian servant. The service was beautiful and very fitting - and I loved how in practically each picture shown she had at least one of you in her arms. You can tell she loves you all (and your dad) tremendously and you obviously brought much joy to her. I will pray for all of you in the days to come and I know your mom is with you always - in all that you do and in all that you are. Love,

Mark,

I found out about Kim's blog through Elaine P. when I was diagnosed with b/c in 2005. I live in Nashville, TN and want you to know how blessed I have been by reading her blogs. Please keep her blog up for inspiration to many others. Her courage, determination, perseverance and most importantly her faith was amazing.

Please know that I will be praying for your family.

Oliver, Jackson, Lehman and Mary Claire --

It's fun to be a kid, and your mom helped me have fun as a kid too!! I knew both your mom and your dad when I was your age. Your mom was the BEST baby-sitter on earth. So I can only guess what I great Mom she must have been. She was SO fun!! We baked cookies or went swimming and had a BALL! I always wanted her to baby-sit me.

Anyway, because she and I had fun when I was a child, I wanted to try to share something with you all that reflected those fun memories I have with her. So, I started thinking and looking around at her blog when I saw a link for Oliver's blog -- I visited that too. I saw Oliver had a photo of Eli Manning that was labeled "awesome". My friend Abby is going to marry Eli in a few months and so I e-mailed to tell Eli about your mom and about you guys. Well, after he heard about everything and how great you all are, he sent some special surprises to each of you!! They arrived at my house today and should be at your house by the end of the week.

Know that your mom and you guys have touched a lot of lives, and so many people are thinking of you and your family in these days.

With all my love to you,
Rachel Malone
