Keren Kay McIntyre was my grandmother and she was the best she use to give me a cookie and then sing a song who stole the cookie from the cookie jar my mom also used to tell me stories about when my mom would give me to my grandma when she had to go to cross kids in the morning and at night I loved my grandma and I miss her so much.

Oh my friend Karen, I will miss you. After I lost Roger, I thought you and I would share many years yet to come. We were the same age and married husbands the same age. We loved talking and going out to lunch, or dinner, the four of us. One of Karen's talents was the ability to keep everyone working and pushing forward. She loved her grandkids, her children, nieces and nephews and especially her dear Jack. Jack, hang in there. This is the hardest part of eternity, when we have to say goodbye for a time. She will be near you during this time.

My mom was one of the most giving, and loving women I have ever met. She was a women who cared for her husband, kids, and grandchild more then life itself. I could always count on my moms great advice and shoulder to cry on if I needed it. I miss my mom more and more as each day goes by as I don’t have my best friend to talk to each morning. 😢
Even in the end my mother was fighting the cancer in hopes of getting to be able to be with her family for a longer period of time. She was a very strong women who fought hard to survive.

M y fondest memory of my Aunt Karen was that we I was a trouble teen she took the time for me. She thought I needed to learn a lesson so Aunt Karen had a cabin in park city. My punishment for kicking uncle jacks niece in cards (that I almost got crap beat out of me ) was raking the carpet. But I was a good bluffer. Also we would laugh at grandma’s when grandpa would tell us to bite his big toe. Well we all laughed except grandpa when I did!! I shared a lot of time on the phone and in person when I could with Aunt Karen. She was a strong lady. Put up with a lot of my crap was very forgiving. We shared a special time together in our life we got to really know each other built a respect for each other. Our phone calls we talked about our children. As a matter a fact I had a daughter named Jenifer Lynn. She liked the way I spelled it. So she had a Jenifer lynne. Had to change it a little. Lol! I love my Aunt Karen she was my rock when my mother past. She pulled me up when my husband was killed. She seemed to have the words to make me realize I am never a lone she was always there. Listen to me cry. Gave me the strength to keep going. I pray the day we meet again that our laughter can be hear in all of the heavens. I miss you Aunt Karen. You have left a imprint forever in my heart. We will meet again. Love you!
