I will always remember how JoAnn and Larry would go at it. He always had jokes and she was always full of smiles and laughter. We've shared so many great memories. Our beloved, JoAnn McKim will forever be in our hearts as we remember the times that bought us joy. To Beth, Renee, Andrew and Kevin, continue to remember those good times, the times you have exchanged kind words and even the moments of disagreements because they were clearly evidence of the love you shared for each other. The feelings of loss will never go away, but the methods of coping you develop will lessen the sting of your loss more and more with each passing day. We are all fortunate to have had a mother to call our own. But, alas, she was only on loan to us by the Universe and, deep in our hearts, we knew that she will one day be called to join the countless others who have come long before us as a bright star that twinkles in the night's sky. We love you, JoAnn and we are grateful for the time we were honored to share with you. Continue to rest in peace knowing that your children and grandchildren are forever surrounded by love that will keep them safe and warm. Love you, JoAnn. With the deepest sentiments of love and affection for my "family"- the McKims, De-Anthony King.

Our mom lost her life today but sadly Alzheimer took her over a year ago. She loved and is loved and is now pain free and at peace.
