I have had the honor of knowing Kim Pickens since before she was first married all the way to now and her first Husband Gary Bush and her kids. I wish I could say that I have known Ken Tomio, but alas I don’t, that said I will say that I am sure her leaving one job is their loss, and her new job their gain. Kim Bush Tomio has always been one of the sweetest and most professional persons I have ever known in my life San Fransisco should be very proud to have her and Tyler should also feel proud to have had her. I am sorry this statement is so late in comming-but I just found out a few days ago. However my oldest son lives in San Francisco he will be able to renew an old friendship as a child that he new with her. Our best to Kimberly Bush Tomio / she is a very gracious lady.
