Kim meant so much to so many , but to me and @Wondaland she was the woman who single handedly changed our lives . When I moved to ATL , I was passionate about being an artist but had not gained much exposure . If it had not been for you and the Three Brown Girls (Your company w/ Nicole Johnson & Eboni Elektra) belief in me & inviting me out to do your open mic night "Lip Service" at Justin's restaurant, my career would have been on another path . You lovingly connected me with two key players that helped move my career forward , @bigboi & @diddy . I am forever indebted to you . When the headlines talk about you I pray they talk about the platform your company gave new and up and coming artists in Atlanta . YOU WERE A CONNECTOR . You were a champion of women in the industry . YOU WERE A BOSS moving through this life with so much style and grace . I am happy we got to hug and talk at Puff's party but man do I wish I could have told you one more time how much I love you . I am heartbroken . You were light . You were supportive . You were stunning . You were kind ALWAYS . You were creative . You were as real as they came . You were an incredible mother . You were rare . I'll forever miss you my Sagittarius sister . I am praying so hard for you @diddy , all of the kids , @ebonielektra , @coreygamble , @officialalbsure , and the entire family . I love y'all so much . Your spirit lives forever @ladykp . Forever our lady . Your bday party 2007 . #kimporter
