Karen's husband Bill and I rode the same school bus as children. I introduced Karen to my friend Bill and they merried. My wife and I we're very close to Bill and Karen and we shared many good times for over forty years with them. Karen had quite a sense of humor that was equal to her husband Bill. Every time my wife and I got together with them it was fun fun fun and laugh laugh laugh. My wife Kim and I feel very blessed to have had them in our lives. They will sadly missed.
