Jim and Karen helped my dad raise my sister Melissa and I when we were growing up from 9’yrs old to HIgh School . Rocky and Shelly my sister Melissa and I we always hung out together. Karen was like the mom I never had and the girls were just like sisters to us I don’t remember a time without them. I truly loved being a part of the family and loved both of them like they were my parents. My prayers go out to you Rocky and Shelly I love you nboth and I loved mom and dad too they will always be missed.

Such good friends, both Karen and Jim. Many Friday nights together. They helped us move to Burlington in 1974 and missed them dearly. The kids all played together in the bedroom, where Karen nails the dresser to the wall so they wouldn’t tip it over while playing. They did come to visit a couple times. So many memories 😢
