out of their control."

"Death leaves a headache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal".
(a message from Nancy and Vicki to Judy).
This beautiful illustration of Kim Wetzel was drawn by the artist Kathy Fitzgerald and commissioned by Nancy and Vicki, friends of Kim's mother, Judy Wetzel.

Although it wasn't possible to have a funeral, a parade of 70 cars passed by Judy's house with posters, honking horns to support Judy. This was one of them.

The Sirens Motorcycle Club of NYC also held a virtual Memorial Service for Kim. Kim's wonderful spirit touched so many people and that is apparent by the response of her friends and family who donated to NYMB in her name.
