    Growing Up my Sister & I were as different as Night & Day. "Sissy" was a goody -- goody & I was like the Black Sheep. Kimberly was a Straight A Student. I was A Flunky. From the time Kim was very Young she worked Extremely hard & was very Determined. I Remember her carrying close to 40 pounds in Books Home each Night, for her Studies. The Stack of Books was Half the size of her.


    Kimberly was also a very good Athlete, A Life Guard at a very young age. A very good Basketball player & Excellent in Field Hockey. Her Field Hockey Teams in High School was among the Best in the State during that Era. Kimberly was the Leader & CO-captain on those teams. She could have easily gone to College on an Athletic Scholarship but she chose her Studies first & went to UVA. In her adult life Kimberly has Been just as Determined & Focused. She is considered one of the Best Telecommunication Lawyers in the Country. 


    After Ben Died Kimberly was there for me. She was there in a way I cannot put into words.  I will always remember & be thankful for that.
Kim plays a Big part at her Church with there outreach. I have called many times on a Friday night & She will be at the Church feeding the Homeless. Kimberly has also been a Huge Supporter in my Efforts & AGFB.
