To Karen's family......
I am so very sorry for your loss. It was an honor to have worked with Karen and to call her a friend. She was a woman of strength, independence, wit, stubbornness and the biggest, kindest heart. I will miss hearing about her love of "just getting in the car and going someplace i haven't seen" and i will miss her proudly talking about her grandchildren. I will miss her strength and determination....she never gave in. May she rest in peace and may you all find comfort in your memories of her....... Love, Barbara

I wish more than anything that I could see her just one more time. I can remember as a young girl thinking how beautiful she was. She was a kind and loving sister to me. Rest in eternal peace Karen.
