Your book is breath-taking! I know you and I have discussed that every time I’m in Rochester and go up 96 and past Rand Place, I think of you. I have a memory of a play date at your house. If I remember correctly your room was in the front of the house, overlooking the street. I seem to remember Chip stopping by very briefly to tease you some. I’m sure we spent some time together at the Klehammers, in their attic playroom.
You are really quite remarkable. You took so many challenges and turned them into learning experiences but also positively touched the lives of so many. I have always admired you and this brings that admiration up even higher.
I’m so glad that you and Janet found each other. I cheered her on when you had reached inside yourself during your cancer treatment and felt you had no more to give. Hurray for Janet who wouldn’t let you give up! The world is a better place with you in it.
The book was great. I had my mother read it….she finished it before I did! You had such a wonderful relationship with your parents, especially with your mother. Aren’t we lucky that our mothers were there for us growing up…and beyond.
Kim, thank you for sharing your story. You may tell yourself you are not an writer/author but there are many of us who disagree. Your style is beautiful.
Thanks for the memories!
A must read!
