It is hard to believe that a year ago today we were on a plane headed back to Utah for my father in law Kim's funeral. I remember we found out that he had passed away in the airport just as we were about to board the plane. I of course started crying heavily and Eddie was the one that comforted me. I cannot believe it has been a whole year and so many changes have taken place. With little Carson it makes me realize how much love a parent has for a child and I know that Kim felt that for Eddie.
One of my favorite memories of Kim was when I was working for him at Gilt Edge Flour Mills. I was in charge of typing up P.O.'s for their shipments. One day I made a mistake and the shipment was sent off course. When the mistake was found out instead of making me feel worse than I already did, Kim told me not to worry about it even though the mill would be fined a few hundred dollars. He also took the blame upon himself saying he should have caught the mistake as well. I know that it was in fact all my fault but he was kind enough not to make me feel like it was.
I know Kim was a wonderful man because I see it in my husband everyday. Eddie learned the value of hard work from both his parents and to honor his Priesthood from his Dad. Eddie still opens the door for me which I know he learned from his Dad. I remember Kim would always get the door for Lynette whenever we were going anywhere.
I just wanted to thank both Kim and Lynette for being wonderful parents and raising a Son to love and respect his Wife. I know that this year has not been easy for Lynette but she has been so strong and I look up to her very much for that strength.
I am very honored to be a transplant into the Hutchison family and their legacy. I am also glad that my Son will be able to carry on the Hutchison name.
We love you Kim and you will never be forgotten!
