    I have only been on this board a few years, and have an exceptionally terrible memory, but the story I read about Kimber here and how I felt reading it left a long-lasting impression. I was in awe that someone like her existed. I still am.

    This instantly made me cry and it didn't stop until I started writing this.

    Reading through this thread and other ones, it amazes me how so many people have such wonderful things to say about how she touched their lives.

    To be able to have such an incredible impact on people through the stories others have told about her speaks unfillable volumes about who she was and will continue to be. Those kind of people never truly pass, they always live on through the people they so positively affected.

    Thank you for continuing to share stories about her, D_B. It's truly appreciated.

    a recent one from last summer ...

    we went to Idlewild for a brief getaway.
    Kimber had her new power chair that brags about the suspension it has, was the first time trying out the new chairs capabilities, after trying a few things, broken pavement, small curbs, etc, that it handled so well, Kimber's reaction was ..
    OMG now I want to find more stuff to drive off , climb over ! :jump:

    after we got home we kept testing the chairs capabilities .. here is Kimber going off a full size curb in her QUICKIE QM-7 with Spidertrack 2.0 suspension ... the look on her face when I suggested she go off it .. horror and anticipation both :)
