  • Such a shock to all of us. My sister was the nicest person always caring about others. Especially her family. We had a good time growing up she was such a fun loving person. I really missed her when she moved out west. We alway tried to get her to move back to Jersey. She will be missed a lot. She is now with our parents and brother Steven.💔

  • While I didn’t see Kim frequently, every time I did, the conversation always turned to family. Kim would joyfully share stories about Lexi, her daughters or share how much she missed her folks. She had a good sense of humor too as I teased her about her “work husband” and imitated her Jersey accent only to have her return a hilarious zinger or two. What a shock to learn of her untimely passing. She was a dedicated worker especially to Dr. Grossman. and I observed her going above and beyond for many patients and coworkers. Her no nonsense style concealed a heart of gold that deeply cared for others, especially her family. I hope she has found solace in reuniting with those who have passed on and they are rejoicing together over a wonderful Italian feast. You are missed, Kim.

    I just found out about Kim’s passing. I am shocked and saddened to hear the news! I worked with Kim nearly 10 years and not a day didn’t go by that we didn’t talk to one another at work. She always mentioned her girls and of course Riley. She was devoted to Dr Grossman and her patients that she cared so much for. May Kim be at peace with the Lord and her family and friends who have gone before her. May her girls know that she is watching over them and she is still near them. God bless you Kim!
