By now you know that Miss Kimberlee Rasmusson went home to be with the Lord on Feb 1. Although this was unexpected and leaves an enormous hole in our hearts, we know that she is in heaven and even though she loved her family and friends more than anything. I know that she would not leave the Savior’s side even if she could.
Kimberlee was a world traveler. She started in New Zealand as a missionary, put herself thru college earning a Master’s in English as a second Language. She used that education to teach in South Korea and many years in the Middle East. She visited many, many countries and enjoyed the people everywhere. The mail has poured in from all around the world where she touched hearts and changed lives.
Kimberlee was attending the seminary and would have graduated with a Master’s in Divinity in late May. I want you to know that everything she did she earned by herself but with God’s help. Her life was not always easy but she made something of herself through hard work, determination and trust in God.
A naturally quiet and reserved person, she would not like all this attention, but as the mother who adored her, I have the right to be proud of her and I am. Being involved with the inmates at San Quentin thru volunteer work with the Catholic and Protestant churches as an intern was something that she believed in. She believed in you, she believed you could have a better life and become the people God wanted you to be. Do that in her memory. Remember the things she taught you and shared in her messages.
I would like to leave you with this thought: “God loves you so much that if you were the only person on earth, He would have sent His Son to die for you.”
