French, Kimberly Lynne
On November 1, 2018, we lost Kimberly Lynne French to her 5-year battle with Ovarian Cancer. Kim, a longtime resident of Holiday, FL, is survived by her mother Bonnie Bradham and sisters Tracy Ripkey (Steve Ripkey) and Ashley Combs (Steve Combs), along with special family members Sean, Brian and Lauren Alamo.
Kim was a loving daughter and sister, with a strong love for animals. Kimberly graduated from East Lake High School. She had a career in care giving. Kim was a trained Phlebotomist, served as a dental technician, and worked in the health care field providing care and assistance to the elderly.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation made to the Pasco County Animal Services in Kimâ€™s memory. http://fpcas.org/

Iâ€™ve sat here trying to figure the words to say on here and I get a few out then hit the delete button. No matter what I say it doesnâ€™t take the heartbreak away. You have been my friends for so long and now I have to say goodbye and I donâ€™t want to. You became my older sister that I never had. You always knew what to say to me and help me when I didnâ€™t know what to say or do. I miss you so very much.
To the French family Iâ€™m so sorry for the pain that you all feel about Kim. She loved you all so very much. Bonnie I donâ€™t know where to begin to tell you what you daughter has done for me. You raised a beautiful, smart, sassy and caring daughter. Kim and I spent many late nights talking about you and how great you are and the things that you have done for Kim. You are a strong liovibg woman. Just know sheâ€™s here with you with all of us. She hears you. I know words canâ€™t take the emptiness that is in your heart but try and fill that with all the wonderful happy memories of Kim.
Ashley and Tracy I never got the chance to really get to know you that well. Your sister has told me some great stories about you two. Iâ€™m sorry for the lost of you sister.
