So sorry to see you go. I'm sure Mom and Dad are waiting. It seems like we have known each other for years. All the laughs when taking care of your parents. My deepest sympathy to Jeff and Brian and all the family.
Deepest thoughts and prayers

I am very sad to hear about Karen's passing so early in her life. I have a special memory that I would like to share. Many years ago (like back in the late 1970's), my sister & I went to the Toledo Speedway Jam to see a concert. Out of all the people at the concert, we run into Karen! It was amazing as we did not know she was going to be there. We had a blast hanging out for the rest of the event. It is a wonderful memory I have of a wonderful person. I will miss you Karen. Love, Dolores
