    Ottumwa IaI have many fond memories as a child of visiting my funny Uncle Kim in Fargo ND
    . I remember him always taking my sisters and I to McDonalds for our happy meals! It may seem so simple, but as a child it was a big deal to go get a happy meal with uncle Kim. I remember him always taking the time to play with us at the park, and goofing around with us. I can vividly see him in his jean overalls with his t- shirt- that never changed! I was always excited to go visit him! Even though I haven’t seen him since my wedding in 2001, My memories of him will last forever, they can never be taken away. WE love you and you will be in my heart forever! Thank you for giving me memories that will last a life time.

    Hi Phillis, As I was looking for another obit on the Boulger site I noticed that Kim had died. Our sympathy to you. I never knew him real well of course, but I knew he was your son. It’s hard to loose one of our own since that isn’t the right order for dying. I talked to your sister here in VC last summer and she said you’re still doing pretty well but I think she said you had slowed down a little too. I turned 80 this Spring and I know I sure have and so has Dan.
    Again, our sympathy and peace.
    Sincerely, Dan and Bea
