Karney was such an inspiration to all who knew her. I worked with her for many years and also went to the same church she attended. She touched many lives through her unselfish service to many causes supported by her church. We laughed together a lot and I will cherish those years that we knew each other and created those memories. Rest In Peace my friend.
