Is it acceptable to place "most" before the main verb like the sentence below?

I will remember you for being strong but I will most remember you for being kind.

No - it's not acceptable to place 'most' before a verb. You need the adverbial form: mostly.

"I will mostly remember you..."

The sentence sounds a little awkward because of the repeated *I will remember you for". So it might be more idiomatic say, "... but I will particularly remember your kindness".
