Such a shocking, tragic loss of a dear friend from London days. Karen was so kind, so full of life, curiosity and gentle humour. We enjoyed regular cultural outings in the city, invariably including a search for the best almond croissants to enjoy with our coffee afterwards. We became experts. She was a wonderful mother to Austin who has lost her far too early, and a passionate and intrepid traveller. The last time we were together in person was in Tokyo years ago which she enjoyed with characteristic enthusiasm. She will be missed by so many but never forgotten. In deepest sorrow and with sincere condolences to Austin, Karen's mother and brothers.

It is absolutely heartbreaking to know that Karen is no longer with us. We spent many happy hours --mostly walking and talking or circling Battersea Park--in London as our kids were growing up there. Such a gifted artist and photographer and quick wit. We both departed the UK around the same time and landed on different coasts and although we no longer lived "down the road" Karen's take on the world , quick laugh and adventurous spirit are easily accessible as are so many wonderful memories--I am just so so sad that she is no longer here. My sincere condolences to Austin, to her mother and her brothers. With great sadness and a very heavy heart,
Wendy Wolstoncroft

I'm so very sad to learn of Karen's passing. We've known each other since college days, and kept in contact over the years, in the UK and in and around New York.

She was a lovely person with a generous spirit, deeply committed to her family. I always looked forward to hearing about her latest travels, and sharing what we'd each heard about the friends we have in common. We had just swapped emails at the end of March, which has made this loss all the more shocking and upsetting.

My sincere sympathy to Austin, to Karen's mother and brothers.
