This will not be a typical obituary, because my sister Kim deserved a more celebratory send off.
Let me begin our Kimmy's story by saying she changed the lives of many, was profoundly loved, and was one of our greatest teachers.
When Kim began her journey here, she came with immense challenges and stubbornness, but a sense of humour that would lead you fits of laughter, her dry wit, straight shooter attitude that put you in your place...made you love and appreciate her even more. But her biggest, best quality was the immense love she had in her heart, and her unparalleled love for her friends and family.
Kimmy was autistic, developmentally delayed her whole life, until 15 years ago when she was hit hard with severe depression. Because she was not neuro-typical, medications did not work for her. She journeyed in and out of her beautiful residence to hospital for years, combating the extreme lows.
Then she developed a seizure disorder. Kim's quality of life deteriorated quickly and her spirit wanted to go home. The joy she had, was no longer there. She was tired.
On Monday the 17th of February at 5am, her Spirit went home, escorted by our Grandpa with love orbs, and big white light, as she told us. She physically blessed us yet again by allowing her body to remain so all who loved her could say their final 'see you later', and On February 20th at 5pm, surrounded by 4 women whom she loved, her body completed it,s journey in THE most peaceful passing. She was gracious, beautiful and filled with love to the very end.
Kimmy, Mommy, Lexi, Daddy George and I hope all your "WHAO'S, OH BOY'S, And HOLY CROW'S" be because of the amazing adventures you will have from now on.
You taught us well our darling, don't be a stranger.
Love you Kimmy Coco Pops.
Yours biggest fans, Debbie Leigh, Alexi, Chris, Daddy and Mommy.
