Kim’s calling was much more of social work… networking people together, going out of her way trying to help people, even when the one who really needed help, was Kim. Your description of here John, of how she led you to Cre, is/was her attribute, as she loved to talk and help someone in some way. She helped not only you in that process, but indirectly the many people that you have been able to help on Cre, by your frequent participation and counsel to many on this site. So thanks Kim, for facilitating the hook-up of John Corey to the Cre family, as it has benefited many.
I personally knew Kim, as she lived in Cincy, and contacted me as a result of Cre. She had many personal obstacles in her life, and persevered through most of them, until the final challenge that she couldn’t overcome. While RE investing never did pan out for her, She was an advocate for many, and some of which were better off than she, but she crusaded on in spite of some very difficult circumstances… not just her latest health problems, but many problems before that… and somehow she waded through, onward and upward… Quite a lot of tenacity embodied in one human being.
Her involvement with Cre and some other sites, gave her some purpose that she otherwise would not have been albe to have. The family at Cre and other sites, were very important to Kim, and in some way… really many ways, filled some of the void that existed in her life.
One never knows by the pecking away on a keyboard, how much of an impact it can have on the receipients life. In Kim;s case, her give and receive on this site was of great impact to her, as was as significant impact to other here too… So while it is sad that she is no longer among us in a mortal way, I’m sure she is already working on the equivilent of that next RE deal in the hereafter… whatever that may be. She has no doubt talked her way into the hearts of her new friends, family, Brothers and Sisters, at the cyber-site in the sky…
Farewell Kim. Your mission will be missed, as few would be able to motivate themselves to perform under your conditions, as you have. God Bless.
