    I was so sorry to hear about Kim I did not realize that her visitation funeral was today or I would have been there. She was a wonderful person I remember her when we were in school.

    There are no words to express the loss of such a wonderful person as Kim. She was my first best friend and my oldest friend. A good portion of my family was there to welcome her, my mother, Judy Ewing Burrough, my brother, Brent Burroughs my grandparents Harold and Kathryn Ewing and my uncle Steve Ewing. I am sure you all will have a peaceful time waiting on the rest of us. Will you see again my friend. Rest peacefully and know that you are missed.

    Oh this is so horrible I worked with Kim one line 620 for over a year, just the two of us. She was truly a joy to be around and we had tons of good laughs together to get us through the days. This breaks my heart.

    I am so sorry. I worked around Kim when she was a tugger driver at Aisin.
    She is now painfree and with the lord.
    Prayers to her family.

    I’m so sorry for your loss! I worked with Kim at Aisin for years. She was a good friend and always real with everyone. She was there to help me when I got divorced and started a life of my own.
    She was definitely one of a kind!
    Thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of someone special.

    Kim, you were one of the first people I met when I moved to Goreville in 1970, my Junior year. You were so friendly and always checking up on me to see if I needed anything. I lived out on Wolf Creek Road and it was hard to make friends out there. We moved the next year to Herrin but I never forgot you and always wanted to come back and thank you for your kindness. I will find you in Heaven.

    Kim: We survived the Marion Tornado together along with your boys back in 1982. Although we grew apart I will always remember your wonderful personality and your great smile. Rest in peace sweet Kim.

    I never knew you personally, Kim– but I heard a lot of good things about you from your mom, Martha. Martha is a long time best friend of mine and was my neighbor for years in Austin, TX. You were blessed to come from a great family. You were loved dearly by everyone! Rest in peace. You are in good hands with the Lord.
