Kim Hoang Phan was born July 6, 1960, in Ho Chi Minh city. With a proud heritage and respectful parents, growing up she lived a privileged life. In 1985 Kim, her family and her younger brother Minh Phan moved to Culver City California USA. At the age of 25 Kim re-established herself after 3 years of working and saving, she opened her own business and purchased a house in Anaheim, Orange County. Kim was loved and adored by her family and friends. She was brave, intellectual, and strong minded but very forgiving, kind, and faithful to the people she loved. Her favorite flowers are red velvet tea roses and orchids. She liked classic love songs, with her favorite singer being Ngoc Lan. Kim loved spending time with her family and friends, and would cook her favorite foods and host birthdays, holidays, and weekend parties at her home.
Kim moved to Tucson AZ in 1997 to live with her brother Minh Phan, and became a Christian in 1997. Kim was brave, resilient, and very independent. She was proud of her heritage, confident and sure of herself. Kim was admired for many reasons, including her success, intellect, and strong personality. She has a beautiful heart, and this is not just a sad story of her battling seizures, fighting off infection, losing her only son to an accident at the age of 36. She was victorious in life through all this. Her triumph, her resilience… yes, she lost a few but she gained so much more from the day the Lord saved her in 1997. She gained so much more than she lost, her Heavenly Father that loves her more than anybody. A Heavenly Father that never forsake her, she was protected and had so many prayers answered. She had so many miracles, she is not gone…she's going home to heaven to be with her Heavenly Father and her birth father and mother, her sister and her son. Wow, I admired her, and now see she had so so much more than wealth and money. Her Heavenly Father freely gave all that to her. She lived here 61 years, some people live to 100, but she's going to live for 1000’s of years in heaven with her family. We will see her there, too…with salvation and peace no money can purchase.
