Karla, you were the cousin that I loved having adventures with! Whether singing at the top of our lungs in your big backyard, walking to Milgram's for candy or gum, or going to the creek near your house to explore/try to spy on our brothers--everything was fun and kinda crazy when we got to spend time together. Walking over to Uncle Don's--through the field or along the country road--times we spent sharing stories and hanging out with our other cousins! You always had a smile, and laughed even when the joke you were telling was on yourself. Those writing on this memory post are a testament to the great impact you had through your generous, easy nature and zest for life.

Because I was Teresa's, tag-a-long little sister, I have memories of times spent with Karla. It was always a good time with Karla and Teresa when I would crash their high school reunions, or various wedding receptions or other social gatherings. Karla had an infectious smile that lit up the room, but the thing that I appreciated most, is how she treated me and talked to me. She never made me feel like the "tag-a-long kid sister". Karla was a good soul and will be missed.
I share a picture of the Our Lady of Lourdes 7th-8th grade cheerleaders, where I was their mascot, which is one of the earliest memories I have with Karla (pictured right side, 3rd row back, swatted down).

Karla, you were a part of a group of friends from grade school through high school....part of a foundation of growing up! Your smile and laugh are my favorite memory and I'm sure you shared that zest with all around you as you continued through life. You will be missed....till our paths cross again.

Karla, my beautiful sister. I don't know where you are now but I do believe your Journey takes you to a much grander and more peaceful place than here. Your smile and laughter lives on in my heart. I won't miss you for an eternity because I'm sure the day will come that God will allow our spirits to join together and on that day we will exchange smiles and hugs and laughter again. Hug mom and dad for me. You are in my heart forever.

Dear Karla,
When I think of you it will not be as my brother’s caregiver (even though I love you for that) it will be as his wife, his friend, his special person.
—-For your love for Sadie and Jackson.
—-For your love for our mom and your love for reading and old movies.
You will be missed.

Dear friend! Even though we all went our different ways after high school, the bond we made in grade school and high school was strong. The experiences we shared were priceless and will always make me smile! Your time here was too short - Fly high!

Dear sweet Karla, I have so many wonderful childhood memories growing up together. I will forever treasure those in my heart. Thank you for being our friend.

It is so strange to think you are no longer here. I've been thinking a lot about all the fun we used to have. From kindergarten to high school; slumber parties to Girl Scouts; cheer leading to softball; Kansas to Westport; South Dakota to Spain; we had some good times. Oh, the stories we could tell. I'll see you on the other side, my friend.
