Kim Garland – Fairmount Family Care Provider

My story started about 6 years ago when I lost my 35-year-old brother (best friend) to a motorcycle accident. I received a phone call on Thanksgiving that brought me to my knees (literally).

I had spent my entire adult life in the corporate world.  When I lost my brother nothing could prepare me for that loss.  Even though he was married, my father and myself were the ones who made the funeral arrangements.  Something I have never experienced.  The funeral director who sat with us and walked us through this tragedy was a Godsend.

By far the worst day of my life, she made it easier with her compassion.  I left that meeting with a feeling of gratefulness and with no worries.  She had everything under control for us.  We celebrated my brother’s life with her guidance.  I walked away from the experience with thoughts that I had no purpose in life.  I spent my time away from my family to make corporations more money.  I needed a change; I needed to make a difference in the world, in others lives.  I needed to give back what she gave me.

A week later I moved to Colorado and walked into Fairmount.

Today, my experience gives me the tools to help families thru their worst possible day.  I know their pain, I relate.  It’s an honor and privilege to take care of them.
