Bill, Debbie and family, Carol and family, and Jerry,

I have many good memories of times with Karen when we were in high school at Jefferson. I especially remember her excitement and joy when she came to school and shared that she had had her first date with Bill!
My thoughts and prayers are with you as you share in your own memories of good times with her.
