Skip to comments.Kimberly Webb Joyner, 1970 to 2011
Posted on 11/28/2011 2:06:06 AM PST by DetroitRight
This is a day old, but the site was down and I was unable to share it.
My wife, Kimberly Webb Joyner, died this morning in her sleep from unknown causes. She was 41.
She leaves behind two little girls she loved more than anything, Katie, who turns 3 on New Years Eve, and Ellie, who was born June 21.
We met in August 2004 and were married on October 8, 2005. She had just turned 35 and I was a few weeks shy of 40 but neither of us had been married before. We shared religious and political worldviews but very different personalities. She was extroverted, sunny, and patient to my introverted, grumpy, and antsy. I almost certainly got the better of that bargain.
Kim was my partner, helpmate, and confidante. Her passing leaves a gaping hole in my life.

That’s sad, but strokes aren’t uncommon in women of that age. I would bet that that’s what happened to her.
My deepest condolences. You and your daughters will be in my prayers.
So sorry, I’ll pray for you and your family.
I am so, so very sorry. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and the girls. My very deepest condolences.
OH NO, I am so sorry
God Bless and keep Kimberly, and hold you all in his presence.
I am sorry for your loss.
Prayers for you and yoru family.
yoru = your
Prayers up for you and yours. May our Holy Father wrap Kimberly in His arms and ease the pain for you and your girls.
All Is Well
Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always use
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household world that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.
Henry Scott Holland (27 January 1847 17 March 1918)
I’m so sorry for your loss.
I am assuming that since you are from Michigan and the author of this article is from Virginia that you are not the same person. You should have specified that in your original comment because people are offering their condolences and prayers thinking you lost your wife.
I am terribly sorry for your loss. May God’s healing and peace be with you and your two precious little girls.
May God bless and hold our sister, Kimberly. May He wrap His loving arms around her husband and beautiful girls giving them comfort, strength and love. May Kimberly’s family feel God’s presence. In This I Pray. Amen.
My first wife was two weeks short of her 42nd birthday when she died of
a heart attack.
I cannot imagine your pain. My condolences for your terrible loss :(
God be with you all.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Prayers that Kimberly is in God’s loving arms and prayers of comfort for you and your beautiful daughters.
I’m very sorry to hear that.
I’m not James Joyner!
I run another blog. But I posted it here for James.
Yes, it is sad and yes, James is a very nice man.
Just an FYI.... :)
I’ve known Kim on and off for more than 20 years. Great lady. She not only loved her family but she loved her country too. My condolences go out to James and their family.
