In Memory

Kim Gaydon

Information and post by Shannon Smith Mackintosh

Date Deceased: Mar. 12, 2001
Age at Death: 40
Cause of Death: Huntington's Disease

Survived By: Her father and stepmother. Her brother, Kurt, died only five months after Kim of the same disease.

We lived in the same neighborhood until I moved in 1976. She was probably my first "best" friend and my memories of times we spent together as children are as vivid as my memories of yesterday. She lost her mother to Huntington's Disease at a very young age but somehow she still had a smile and a kind word for everyone. Life can sometimes be unfair and the times we have with those who are dear to us can be way too short. Never forget to tell those you love how you feel and take every opportunity to pass Kim's smile along to someone else.

I'm new to this site, but I remember Kim as a really good friend and a good soul. I'm very saddened to hear that she died at such a young age. She was always kind to me. I liked her very much.
