I was deeply saddened to hear of Kim's death. I saw her a couple of years ago at a family get-together and really enjoyed talking to her. I remember spending time with Butch,Donna,Jeanine,Shannon and Kim when I was a kid. They were such a happy family who always made me feel welcome. Us girls had some really fun times. I'll remember Kim with a smile.

Butch I'm so sorry for your loss. Had a lot of great times with Kim she was a good friend. I was thinking about all the fun we had together just the other night, sitting up half the night playing games and waiting for the pager to go off for another ambulance call, all the family dinners, hanging out at the gas station with Butch and Donna. Shannon and Jeannine I wish there was something I could say to make things better for your families. She will me missed but I remember her saying to me I don't want people to cry and be sad when I'm gone I want them to celebrate my life and remember how much I love them. Kim did a lot of good in her short 49 years and was always willing to help anyone who needed it. She will be missed. I love you all

Kim was my cousin, ten years younger than me. She was a good horsewoman and was always the center of anything we did when I used to gymkhana with Kim and her sisters. I will always have many great memories or our trips to the local arenas. I also remember when their whole family brought their camper and horse trailer to Las Vegas to help me move back to Colorado with my horse and my dog. I boarded my horse at their place on Kipling for several months. I had so much fun riding and sharing time with the Mahanas. Kim, you will be missed by all that knew you ~ Melody

I haven't seen Kim for several years, but I remember the trip to get her to the Ocean before she turned 30. We won money in Puckerbrush, NV - that financed most of the trip. She rode upside down in the front seat because of her headache, made it to the ocean AFTER pulling off the road for a quick nap and almost getting arrested because we had handguns in the car. We laughed like loons when the cop gave her the guns and me the bullets - like we didn't know how to load a gun. We ran ambulance together for a few years. She kind of got me into EMS. I smashed her car going to a call one early morning. Lots of memories of Kim and the whole family. Bud and Mercella got letters from my smart dogs, Butch and Donna were like second parents, Neen, Shannon (Rusty)...was a great time. My thoughts are with Kim's family.

Kim was working for animal control at the time she told me about a litter of puppies and there was only two left, She brought me this leggy awkward looking dog, he looked like a Great Dane,all legs, curly tail,a mutt but he wasn't as big as he looked. We named him Murray , Best little dog we ever had. he lived 17 years. She had a way with Animals and knew how to match dogs with the owners. Kim was a sweet,funny and a very outspoken person, if there was something that needed to be said, by golly, she would speak her mind. Taken too soon at her young age. She now has another job to do,watching over the ones she loved. She will be missed by all who knew her. Our Heart Felt Sympathies to her Family: Always, Griz, Terri Adams and Family
