  1. Beautiful. Touching. I truly wish we could have been friends sooner so I could have met Kim, John.

  2. Kathy says:

    She sounds like an absolutely lovely lady, John. Like anyone who is truly loved, she may gone, but never forgotten. *hugs*

  3. Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. were the first to come to my mind, John. I’m sure the current spate of comics at Dark Horse would just be piled in front of her. Thanks for the memories…

    That was a wonderful tribute, Mr. Ostrander. Thank you for sharing it with us, sir.

    Absolutely beautiful, John.

    You SO nailed why Kim was my best friend–kindred spirits.

    I think she would have been an absolute NUT for BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, don’t you? And like me, she would have been rooting for Buffy & Spike!

    God, 15 years.
