    Kim Adams was the first friend I made at VA and I shall miss her! Yesterday as word spread I heard comments like “She always treated me the same as she treated anyone else, even though I’m only a 5″, “She always helped me”, “She was beautiful inside and out”.

    What a lady! What a friend! We will all miss you, Kim!

    I worked with Kim for many years at the VA and she was one of the most incredible people that I have met in my life. She was kind and always had a smile for you , no matter what was happening. Her laugh was pure joy. Kim made an indelible imprint on my life. Please accept my condolences for she truly was a blessing here on this earth.

    Ronnie and family.
    I’m so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Kim at the VA. For awhile we would walk from the VA to Dixon street solving the problems of the world. I remember when she bought her first computer at Montgomery wards. She was a very smart and sweet woman. I was always mad at her for planning to retire before me because she was younger.I will truely miss her. But good to know we will have an angel watching over us.

    I was so sorry to hear of Kim’s passing. She and I became good friends during my time at the CAVHS, and partnering as presenters at VA conferences. She was loving and funny, smart and savvy. Since my retirement, I have missed our telephone chats. Prayers of comfort and peace are being lifted for her family and friends.

We worked together at the VA for many years and I’m sure all her co-workers and r friends feel the same way. May you have some comfort in knowing she is truly loved and will be missed by many.
