Sending heartfelt condolences. I had the pleasure of working with Kimberly when she was working for the Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce and I was on the board. She was bright, energetic and friendly, a great asset for Baldwin businesses. She always had a smile and the willingness to work hard and get things accomplished for the chamber. What a big loss for friends and family.
