    Difficult to believe you’ve left us so soon. You had a good heart, and a warm personality.
    Nonetheless, you’re on the other side now with the Bell Boy. You both can play music eternally…

    You’ll be too busy playing music to rest in peace…

    Kim was a great guy. Always had a smile on and I never heard him say anything negative about anyone. I knew him from the 7th grade on and it was always a pleasure for me to run into him from time to time.

    Was saddened to read Kim passed. Though he had gotten feeble in his later years, he still would amble by my house and say hello. Be in peace my friend, Shine Bright, strum your guitar, while we all gently weep.

    Kim was a great friend of mine back in high school. Although we haven’t kept in touch over the past 40+ years
    I have fond memories jamming with Kim. He was always pleasant and was a true musician with great taste.
    I was blessed to have known Kim.
