Kim passed away in November

Following her death, the father of Christian, Jessie James and D'Lila, rapper P Diddy, released a statement which read: "God broke the mould when he made Kim, there was truly no other woman like her. Although her time here on earth was far too short, she lived a life full of purpose and meaning. She was a loving mother and devoted friend. She was the epitome of kindness and grace. There wasn't a person she met whose soul she did not touch. Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better." Her father also released a statement which read: "As I reflect on my time with my beautiful daughter, I treasure the last few years I spent living in Los Angeles to be with Kim and the children. It was a blessing to be able to have that special bond with all my grandchildren and experience their day to day life and activities. Kim was a great mum and her spirit continues to radiate through her children."
