  1. I always say that the Lake Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce is a family. Kim was definitely part of our family. He brought joy to many events through music. I will never forget one of the first Business After Hours near Halloween that I organized after coming to the Chamber. I thought it would be fun to have a costume contest. Kim came creatively dressed as Popeye. Kim and I had many a good conversation in my office about a variety of topics. I know that he is in Heaven, likely wearing his signature suspenders and definitely making music.
    Dearest Mary, I am praying for you during this difficult time, but I know that your faith will see you through.
    God bless!
