Moment of Silence: Remembering Kim Terry

Sept 18 th has taken on a whole new meaning to me since the 18th of Sept 1994. This day took a dear ward friends life in a tragic accident by a drunk driver she was sent back to our Heavenly Father.

I will never forget that day, nor the reprocussions of it. It will always remain a day of rememberance for Kim and a tender day for her family.

Kim was full of life and spunk. She was always thinking about her best friend her Mom. There were many times in the summer when we were all together that she would say, "Hey can you guys drop me off, my Dad is out of town this week and I want to go watch a movie with my Mom" I remember wishing I was so thoughtful towards my Mom.

I remember going to TCBY after some YW activities cause Kim was there working. I remember how she always was so put together. I remember her gorgeous eyes that lit up magically.

I know that her presence is missed every second by her family. I pray for my sweet friend Pat, her mom, constantly cause I know how deeply she misses her.

Today and every year, Sept 18th will always be a day of reverence for me. It will always remind me of the reality that there is another work going on in Heaven and that sometimes our Father in Heaven has to take someone so loved away, to help those waiting for more knowledge in Heaven.

Kim, you are loved and missed. Keep shining your love down upon all of us.

Wow! I can't believe its been that long ago. it seems like just a few months ago. I can remember when we were all at girls camp and Kim and Mindy were talking about:"peaches and candy" it was good times. ooh and when we played scattagories at camp and Pat Terry added a few naughty words to the game, thinking none of us knew what the words were.. hahaha good times.
