As I've told you, I knew Kimmy for about 33 years...I was very blessed to have known her that long and to have had the chance to experience so much with her...And, looking back on everything, I truly believe that she spent those 33 years, shaping me into the person I am today, so that I would be ready for this part of my journey.
About 8 or 9 years ago, one of Kimmy's ideas to 'save my soul', was that I should join the Knight of Columbus...being Kimmy, she didn't just come out and say that, but, over the years, she gently urged me to get more involved with the church and the Knights of Columbus became that vehicle. She told me how proud she was of me to get involved with such a community oriented group and would help with fish frys, pancake breakfasts, blood drives, etc.
And when Kimmy got sick, the Knights were there, creating prayer groups across the country. Reaching out, to be sure our family was ok. And when Kimmy passed, the Knights were there again, with donations and heartfelt condolences...well, they have not stopped working hard to help our family!
Now, the St. Pius Council, has voted to donate 50% of their annual raffle to Kimmy's Foundation to help others here in Tucson, families, like mine, that have been devastated by the loss of a loved one. This is one of their largest fund raisers of the year and I was humbled by their offer to help Kimmy's Foundation.
