Klimb 4 Kim 6

                       Here we are in 1998, our 3rd walk, climbing with Cody, not yet one year old, and Cajun, who had just turned 4.

                       It's that time again!!  The Klimb 4 Kim SIX will be on Saturday, March 5th.  Jack LeDuke, will once again grace us with his artistic abilities and design a shirt to commomerate the event!  The shirt will be a $10 donation to help Kim's Fund.  All $10 will go towards helping families here in Tucson!!

                      As you may have read, Kim's Fund, is now benefitting the Pio Decimo Center located here in Tucson.  They do wonderful work for families in need.  They provide services for infant to adults.  We have been focusing on the pre-school through 6th grade needs, but have also helped with older children and adults.  Check out their  website via the link below - this place really spoke to us when the kids and I visited it.  We loved working with the previous admistrator, Carondelet, but they have turned into a 'for profit' organization and could not longer help us.  Our search took a few months, but we feel in our hearts Pio Decimo would have been a place that Kim  wanted to, felt compelled to, help.

                     How much to walk?  If you can donate $25 to walk with us, that would be great - but any amount you can afford will help!!  Or, just choose to walk with us, enjoy the day and help us remember Kim.  Help us to keep her giving spirit alive!

                     The walk is approximately 6 miles round trip.  We walk up the road from St. Mary's to the top of A Mountain and usually cut through the scenic desert on the way back.  Please bring your Kim stories with you!

                     If you cannot walk - I know everyone is so busy, or out of town - you can help by ordering a t-shirt and/or sending a donation.

                    Checks should be made payable to:  Pio Decimo.  Please remember to put 'In memory of Kim Conca' on the memo line.  Mail  to us at 10513 E Satiny Willow Dr.

                      There are no registration forms.  Help out as much as you can, when you can.  You can even bring cash/check the day of the walk.  We go over to Pio Decimo at least once a month.

                     We typically start our walk at 8:00 a.m. -ish sharp. ; )  I will post pic and address of starting point back to this post soon...

                      Join us if you can, we'd love to walk with you!!


"Gone Away"  The Offspring

Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can't deal it's so unfair

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it feels
Yeah it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away

Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary's
Can't bring back what's taken from me
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you've gone away
