    Sad news of Kim’s passing away. I waited too long to find Kim. Kim and I were friends and hung out when we were about 18-19 and Kim lived with his parents outside Harrisonville and they had pigs. I was a co-worker with beautiful Karla at A. D. Mohr greenhouses in P-Hill in 1978. Kim and I would get drunk and terrorize H-Ville. I remember he loved to kick box some. I was intending to track down Kim and get reacquainted but regretfully I obviously waited too long…. I have fond memories.
