"#BachelorNation lost one of her biggest fans today and I lost a dear friend. I met @kimcankickit about 7 years ago by coincidence at a concert in Los Angeles. She was a beautiful young woman who had been given the news that he would soon be dying of cancer, "the former host wrote in a sweet tribute to his friend. "I told her that that year, if I was healthy enough, I would like to have her as my guest in the After the Final Rose special. She did that year and I told her that as long as I had strength, thereafter, she had a seat in the front row. Kim came to every live special that I have organized since then and formed a friendship and love that changed my life. "
He continued: "There were years when Kim was completely bald and it seemed he could barely sustain himself, but he was there. He endured more surgeries and procedures than any human being he knows, but his spirit and faith endured. Saying he was strong, brave and brave would be a rude euphemism. To say that I learned a lot and got so much perspective from it would be to live up to its true impact. "

The only thing Kim was really sad or disappointed was his fault of not being a better wife and mother," Chris revealed. "Yes, even in unbearable agony and relentless battles, all he cared about was how much he loved others. I know that the rest of his body failed him, but his heart was as safe as hell. He was as pure as his eyes. they were blue. "

Kim was always looking the next battle, the next step, the next achievement, "he shared. "I am grateful that this beautiful soul has entered my life. She really touched everyone she met and that is the definition of living. She is free from that broken body she was given and I find tremendous peace in that. But a beautiful girl lost her mom, a wonderful loving man @heyurkimshusband lost his wife and I lost a true friend. I love you Kim! "
