Gathering to Remember

Dear Members of the Hobart and William Smith Colleges Community,

Since learning of the death of Warren “Kim” Kimber ’11, many of us have sought solace in one another’s company, in the advice of the Deans and Chaplain, and through the Center for Counseling and Student Wellness.

On Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m., I invite all members of the Colleges’ community to attend a Memorial Service in honor of Kim. The Service will take place at Trinity Church located at 520 South Main Street (see walking directions below). The Memorial Service will be an opportunity for us to gather as a community to honor Kim’s life.

Chaplain Adams has been working with Kim’s friends to prepare the Service’s program. If anyone has any suggestions or reflections, please contact her at

I urge all of you to continue to reach out to one another during this difficult time and to take advantage of the many services the Colleges offer.  I hope to see you Wednesday night.


Mark D. Gearan
