Kim Pham


Kim was a one-of-a-kind soul who was taken from our lives much too soon and we may never understand why. But, during her short 23 years, she kept love in the center of her life and was always willing to help others by lending a hand with an open heart and words of wisdom. Although she was the youngest of six siblings, she had the natural ability to draw people together. As an inspiring writer and a recent psychology graduate from Chapman University, she had published several essays and articles, most notably, “Beyond the Oversized White Gates,” which was a short essay about finding strength in the memories of lost loved ones. She wrote, “I desperately hope that [people] take with them, as I always do, a sense of honor to have been in the presence of such strong souls.” We are blessed to have had Kim be a part of our lives. Words cannot describe the pain and devastation we feel for losing such a beautiful daughter, sister, niece and friend, but we understand God has a bigger plan for Kim and will guide her in heaven.

Kim Pham 3The world may have lost a voice of their generation, but Kim will continue to inspire all of us as we are reminded of the charitable and gracious works she had done and help us find the motivation to make a difference in another person’s life. Registering to be an organ and tissue donor was just one example of her love, kindness and respect. After she died on January 19, 2014 she became a hero, saving five lives through the donation of her heart, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and liver to patients on the organ transplant waiting list. Kim’s gifts could heal dozens more through her tissue donation, which included skin for burn dressings and bone to repair fractures and prevent amputations. She had so much potential, as well as we all do, to make the world a better place. May her soul rest in peace as we continue to share and embrace the love, memories, and life experiences she had. May God bless us all.

*Love* Always and Forever,
