I am Don, step grandson and Karen's stepson. I just wanted to share a moment that will stay with me always. Gram was driving us to the Naval Commissary. I was thinking, she'll be a slower driver but was soon corrected, as it was the total opposite! She was going fast, yelling out loud to other cars to get out of her way! Sharp as a tack she was, 90 yo racecar driver. I will never forget that, and just how wonderful it is to know that one can be ever self reliant! Also, the warmth of acceptance from the wonderful family that she raised. That will be with me always. May she already be with her husband and resting in peace. Love you Grandma!!

Sending love and support for the family of Mrs. Raue. That is what I always called her. She was pretty remarkable and I am so happy I knew her. She never had an unkind word about anyone.
