Dear Brink family,
Kim was a kind soul. She worked for me at the Pier in the late 90s, and I remember asking her she lived at 8th and cherry and the Brinks from old St. Rose and she said Yes.
She was just always nice to be with and work too.
I'll have a mass said for her at historic St. Rose soon. I am so sorry.
Requiem Aternum.
Paul

Kim was in my Mary Kay unit for many years. I loved catching up with her and “playing makeup.” She was so proud of her family. Prayers for all of you!! ❤️
