Dear Nichols family,
I was a classmate of Kim's and enjoyed seeing her from time to time at different events wherever she might be displaying her awesome talent with the floral designs.  She was always smiling and would ask how I'd been.  Heaven has gained a wonderful angel who will brighten those pearly gates with some gorgeous floral greenery.   May God embrace each of you during this time of loss.   Thoughts and prayers for your family 🙏🏼

My heart breaks to read of Kim's passing. Having been an ongoing customer of hers at Batemans for so many years.  I moved to Md  over 20 years ago but I would call Kim for flowers to my mom, birthday and Christmas and she would take care of it with no problem.  Meant the world to my mom and to me to know Kim was my go to.  Absolutely heartbroken.  Thoughts and prayers to her family she has left behind and may God give strength to you.

My beautiful friend who always did so many amazing things for those she loved. She was a person who cared more for her family and friends than herself. She was always there to lift you up and just listen when you needed her most. She gave of herself each day and loved my family unconditionally. She would always set me straight when needed and loved me no matter what. Kim taught me so many things and all the holidays, weddings, church flowers  we spent time together making florals for was time I will never forget. I am blessed to call her my friend and to have had her in my life. My family and I are better for the love she shared with us. I will miss her very much.
