I'm Kimmi's dad. My baby passed away at 4:43 p.m. on March 3, 2009. She was nearly 28 years old. She blessed us with 28 years of the greatest joy any parent could have. She has two brothers which we love dearly, but Kimmi was always extra special because she needed more from us. We always thought we protected her, but, in the end, she protected us. She hid her painful suffering (body and brain) from us for several months while she knew she was dying. She didn't want us to worry.
