Almost to this minute, four years ago is when my ear on your chest heard your last and final physical heartbeat ..
Wherever you are, the beat goes on.
May her memory be for a blessing.
Charlie, I remember so vividly that night in Houston when a bunch of us had dinner together. Unfortunately, your Kim and my Herb are gone. Let's keep remembering the happy days and good times we had with our loved opnes.
And life has never been the same. Kim was one of a kind. We miss you, Kim and will never forget the wonderful woman that you were.

My dear Charlie, it is unthinkable how this miserable diseae has been part of your life for so long now. I will be thinking of you as you remember the great days with Kim and the sadness of her passing. I am pleased to see you posting, and we look up at the stars tonight to see Kim, and think of you...Love to you Joan
My biggest regret is not getting to meet Kim in person. We were planning to meet, in just a couple of weeks, at the Texas MPIP "Bash", and to celebrate October birthdays (hers, mine, David's, Jackie's) with a Marlboro and rum! I miss her, Charlie.......... *Hugz*
Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in an attractive & well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body totally used up & worn out, & screaming WOOHOOO, WHAT A RIDE!!
Thnking of of you and the Kim I never got to meet. Knowing you, I sure wish I could have met her too.
I'm me, not a statistic. Praying to not be one for years yet.
We were never able to meet in person but she was a great woman and is sadly missed. Rum & coke toast tonight. May her memory live on forever. Hugs to you Charlie.
tonight i shall hoist a rum & diet coke
i was blessed to have her in my life, however briefly
love you my friend,
I continue to praise God in this storm, counting my blessings & enjoying my "bonus time!"
While I never met Kim, I feel I knew her well. Thanks for the memory, Charlie
I am just about to do my candle lighting and will light one for Kim. Charlie, there are, of course, no words. I wish I knew some....thinking of you and all of those of us who have lost those we love.
