A Remembrance of Kim Thomas from her Sister Lynn Thomas
Once when her sister Lynn was visiting Kim in Miami, Kim lamented that she wanted to spend more time with her, but had to go to work the next day. Right then and there, in the jacuzzi, she announced: “Well, you know what? I’m not really happy being a stockbroker anyway, so I think I’ll quit tomorrow, then we’ll have more time to spend together while you are here.” Lynn responded, “I don’t think Mom or Dad will be happy about that.”
Kim giggled and said, “Okay, fine, I’ll wait a day!” So she waited, but no longer than a day. And she just quit to move on to something else.
For all of her restlessness, the main constant in her life, according to friends and family, was Kim’s zest for life and the fierceness with which she loved her friends and family. She tried to help those around her to be the best they could and encouraged others to live life “big and authentically,” recalls Lynn.
“She was the person I loved most in the world. Kim was just a source of utter joy. She provided a lot of affirmation for me, which I didn’t feel from many of my family members. She believed in me more than I believed in me, and she had this great way of giving feedback that was non-confrontational, which was sincere and made you take it to heart. Kim was my best friend. No one else will ever come close.”
