I have so many memories. I believe my favorite is the Love she showed all of the children she taught. They were her kids. They Loved her as well. I had the privilege of being her assistant in her class for a while and I learned while these children learned. I will miss my Friend I looked up to her. I want Jack and the family to know she Loved you so much . Larry and I are Praying for each of her Loved ones. May God's love and compassion be with each of you.

My condolences to Karen’s family. I worked closely with Karen at HSM in Longview. She spoke a lot about her family at home and at church. She was a very hard worker and gave 110% at anything she attempted to learn or do. She was so looking forward to her retirement and getting to spend more time with her family. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers!

I'm truly hurt and shocked to see this about Karen's passing. But I know she is rejoicing with the angels. She was always friendly and caring any time I met her. A wonderful Christian lady who lived her life every day for JESUS. I will never forget her and how she cared for the children and led them in singing and Bible verses. She will truly be missed and my prayers go out to her husband and the rest of her family and her Church Family at Pisgah. Love and prayers . Margaret Gragg
