"Sending love and prayers to Bob, Andrew, Matthew and all of the family and friends. I’ve known Kim since I was in high school, when she started cutting my hair. I remember we were both expecting our first child about the same time. She was such a loving soul! I wish I could pay my respects in person, but I am here in Texas 1600 miles away. Always cherish the time you had. "
