Karen and I were close friends in high school and beyond. Unfortunately, we lost touch in recent years. We shared a lot of experiences. Karen attended my wedding and I attended hers. I will remember her laughter, her wit and her sheer enjoyment of life. She adored her children and was very close to her family. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

Karen was like a mother to me for most of my younger years. I have always held her with the highest respect that i can possibly give. She was one of the hardest workers that i have ever known. She was also one of the most caring people that i have ever known. You will be missed, for you touched the hearts of all that knew you. Rest in peace, and say hello to Bud, Gen, and Linda for us all
