Karen, what a blessing you were to the world and all those that knew you. You were like a second Mom to me and I have so many cherished memories with you, Denny and Kristina. Out of all our times together, I'd say what I appreciated about you the most was your thoughtfulness. You never failed in making someone feel like they mattered. You always cared and you always encouraged others and that is such a rare and beautiful thing. I'm so grateful that you were in my life and I'm so thankful for Kristina. She is such a good friend and sister to me. I know you are her guardian angel. Always know that I intend to live in your honor and I will help Kristina in any way I can. God bless you and go with the angels now. What a gift your life was for all who knew you. I'll miss you always Step-Mom.
