Karen is my cousin. We didn’t have many chances to see or know each other because of distance and age difference but I do remember a recent trip east she made with her 2 sisters in 2009 and an earlier trip when she was in college maybe? She was so awesome to me as a young child because she was managing a large Doberman- I think! Anyway she is loved and will be missed.

As her spouse at the time I can not express my gratitude any better than Ron did.

Karen was the principal caregiver for my father in 2001, in the last months of his life. For that we are eternally grateful, and her star will shine brightly.
