    I met Kim when we were both working for Sanofi Pharmaceuticals. We were on the same team and often roomed together for national meetings. We would always wake up early and hit the gym to get a quick run in before our meetings began for the day! She was a very sweet and kind person. I was recently cleaning out some files and came across Kim's name and decided to try and find her on FB to reconnect. That is when I learned she had gone missing. I am so saddened that her life was cut short in such a tragic way. Rest in Peace, sweet Kim.

    I met Kim in early 1980's at Bentley. We quickly became good friends even though there was a 9 year age difference. The many fond memories will remain with me forever. Kim was sincere, genuine, and kind. The last several years of keeping in touch were just Christmas cards and now I wish there was more. You will be missed my friend, as your life ended way too early. You had so much more to offer. Rest in peace.

    Dear Garrett and Jennifer, My prayers go out to you both. I still can't believe your Mom is gone. May she rest in peace with her Mom and Dad. May God give you both strength to go on with your life. Remember the good times you had with your Mom and what a awesome Mom she was. God bless!

    Greg, your Dad and my husband, Don Oberhauser, were first cousins. I only remember you as a little child. Many of my Oberhauser family have been with you, Greg and Garrett, the best way we can be, in spirit, through this difficult time. It is my hope that somehow you will find some closure to this tragedy. I do understand what it is to lose someone so loved, but not in this way. However, I suspect your faith is strong, and while you may not ever quite get OVER it, you WILL get through it.
