Kim is survived by her loving husband Joe, son Joey (Jenny), her beloved Mother Rose, sister Laura (Gary), brother Jim (Kathy), brother Mike (Kristy), beautiful granddaughters Emily, Molly, Riley. Kim is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and many, many friends who loved and adored her.
Entering into the world 59 years ago, Kim was the second bundle of joy to fall into the arms of the beloved and ever-so-sweet Mother Rose and the talented Mr. Walter Panock, commonly referred to throughout her shortened life as Mom and Dad. Badges of honor her parents proudly accepted, not just for Kim, but for the rest of her affectionate family, Laura, Jim and Michael. You see Mom and Dad never knew what was in store when Kim arrived on April 8, 1961. Like all loving parents, they too believed their child’s innocent smile that flashed on first sight would never end and her future was and will always be secure with them as Kim’s North Star. Surely, they didn’t disappoint, and we all were the honored recipients. Kim’s foundation, her life’s meaning, was forged during those epic and youthful times shared with those closest to her. A family’s bond is built upon love, and the Panock family was no exception. It was the collective effort of their loving arms and words that helped craft the Kim we all know, love, and will always remember.
Anyone that was blessed with Kim’s presence, knows that it was impossible for her to hide her true talents ---talents we could all learn from and bring more of to the world--- a trio of powersreally:
Her cheerful smile,
Her distinguishable laugh, and
Her radiant positivity
It was her laugh that could make a dark room bright and transform a once quiet space into one filled with love, joy and energy. (Though, some would infer that bliss was the result of the fine wines she enjoyed so much! For without wine and a few belly laughs how could one survive in this crazy world, I’m sure she whispered to herself many times.)
Beyond the wine though, Kim thoroughly enjoyed life itselfpresenting us countless times with the goofiness that held no boundaries, and her encouraging and oft uttered, “No Problem!”, that ultimately shaped her legacy. There simply were not enough moments that could and should pass without a smile andlaugh, and Kim epitomized her life’s mission statement by making it the signature fabric of who she is and always will be remembered for.
Kim found no excuse to turn down time scrapbooking with friends, crashing a party, and sharing life’s greatest moments with her friends and family as classic time-tested traditions. She loved and would turn back the clock to be with her beautiful grandchildren. Showing each of them countless times in her own way that life is about nurturing those you endear the most. Ensuring they knew they were loved and cared for with the infinite hugs, kisses and I love you’s that she impressed upon them.
Undeniably though, most of her I love you’s have been most recently reserved for her kind and gentle man she luckily andever so happily called husband. Joe is her rock, her soulmate, her ‘one’. Without his arms wrapped around her or his hand in hers, a soulless black hole would have never been erased. Joe is and always will be Kim’s beating heart. “I love you, Joe.” Words that will never be forgotten, unheard, and to be repeated over and over when they reunite once again.
Lest we forget the family that raised and nurtured her? Mom, Dad, Laura, Jim, Mike. Words cannot describe or will never replace the time you were all so lucky to share with Kim. Thesacred memories and joy will carry forward with you all while others can only envy the life’s moments you shared in the pastwith beloved Daughter and Sister Kim. The little nuances that every family share and holds dear; May those innocent secrets and the memories last you for your lifetimes. Be assured that Kim wore your name well and your family bond will never be broken. She misses and loves you.
For the closest of friends and her loving family that hurt beyond words that Kim has honorably forged ahead and seemingly left behind, Kim surely wants and needs you each to know that her heart is most sorry for not being able to properly say one more time…
I love you.
Good-Bye (for now).
Anyone that knows Kim, knows she craves it as much as all of you for the closure and proper send-off. Hoping to help heal your broken hearts, it’s impossible to deny that Dad and Kim are now locked arm-in-arm looking upon you and are bestowing their love, smiles, laughs and tears. May this be the time you reflect and remember the pain you feel in your heart’s today and tomorrow, that ‘this too shall pass’ and one day your arms will be locked with theirs.
In remembrance of the beloved and unforgettable, Kim, vow to love and laugh more.
For that is her one true wish.
