  4. Kim, I met your mom at Infant Resources. We loved to watch how her face lit up whenever a new baby came into our care. She just loved those little ones. No baby ever cried for long if Julie was around. Anita, Carol & myself really enjoyed those times we spent with your mom.
    Our deepest sympathy to you Kim & to your brothers.
