    OMG!! Where do I start!?
    In loving memory of Kim aka OG!! It’s hard to put into words the impact you had on my life and the lives of everyone fortunate enough to know you. When I first met you, I’ll admit, I didn’t quite understand you. But oh, how quickly that changed.Your vibrant personality, infectious laughter, and unwavering kindness quickly won me over. You wore your heart on your sleeve, never afraid to show your true self to the world. Your humor, oh, your humor, it could brighten even the darkest of days. And your generosity knew no bounds; you would give anyone the shirt off your back without a second thought.We dubbed you our OG at work because, truly, you were a soldier. Through every challenge, every obstacle, you faced it head-on with courage and strength. Your resilience inspired us all.Though you moved away to Florida, the memories we shared here in Ohio will forever hold a special place in my heart. From late-night laughs to heartfelt conversations, you were not just a friend, but you were family, Jen, Jacek and I loved you so much .As I reflect on our journey together, I am filled with gratitude for the time we had and the memories we created. You may be gone from this world, but your spirit lives on in the hearts of those who loved you.Rest in peace, dear friend. Your light will continue to shine brightly in our lives forever.With love and fond memories!!! Jen, the boys and I!!!
