Karen, you are one of the funniest, kind, genuine, and sweetest women that I have ever met. I have enjoyed our debates, conversations about our families, lives, hopes and dreams, politics, faith and so much more. When I last saw you in early February, you made sure that I could get in for a haircut as I was going to my sister’s funeral that week. And then when I spoke with you in late March and April to check in on you, little did I know that we would never speak again. You have definitely left us too soon...there is so much more to talk about. You have raised two wonderful young men, and I know you are proud of them. I hope they know how much you loved them. My prayers of comfort go out to Brent, Billy, Jackie, Mike and your Dad...as well as all of your friends. I miss you. I love you. God loves you. Rest In Peace.

Karen was a dear friend and neighbor on Hampton Road in Fairfax Station. I met her when she was only 19 and she did my hair for 40 years. She was so loving and kind to everyone and spoke so dearly of her family and others close to her. Her devotion to her horses, cats, and dogs was such a testament to who she truly was as a caring person. As I drive by her house and see the horses grazing, she is in my thoughts and will be missed by so many.

Karen, you went to soon, that night your shop was closing we were talking about what's next and when I would see you again. Little did I know after 40 years of haircuts and stories that I would never see you again. Enjoyed hearing about everyone and the stories that I had from FB. Glad that Sandy got his Harley before we lost him, I know that he was jealous of me anytime I would stop by, anyway R.I.P. Karen I'm going to miss you.

Karen iv have known you all my life all 33 years I lived next to you for 26 years of my life. I still in shock about this. U were a second mother to me and I always could count on you if I needed to talk we had the best parts with duke drinking beer from a can. We rode Duke and dexter on trail rides all the time. I grew up with both your boys I remember brent and billy in diapers we had so much fun. You raised two beautiful boys there were things I told u and you always kept it between us. The times we had you cut my hair all my life and I just could go on and on with the memories of you and story's. I know you up there laughing with my brother watching over your family and mine. God truly gained an angle. I love you and will always cherish are crazy fun memoirs..

I can't believe that you are gone, I don't want to believe it. The first time I met you I wasn't sure if you would approve of me being with Brent. You accepted me with open arms welcoming me into your tribe. You shared your love for horses with me and we bonded over our mutual love for them. When Brent and I brought Zena home you didn't know until a few days later. You were so mad at us, but you came to love zena and loved your days where she would just snuggle with you. When Harley passed away you were so afraid for me to find out after seeing the bond that the two of us made. We spent hours and hours that night in the barn crying and mourning his loss together. But Harley's death brought us some of our best adventures visiting the different rescues looking for our next soul to rescue. We didn't see what we wanted with them but then came Dahlia, you took one look at her and knew we needed her for Issac. She was so afraid when she first came home. But with all of the patience and love given to her by you she has grown and become the horse she was always meant to be. You taught me so much Karen and I am so great full for the 3 amazing years that I had you for. You did an amazing job raising Brent and Billy. Rest easy and know we all love you and miss you always. <3 I love you,

I have known you for 50 years!! I moved into the neighborhood when I was 9 yrs. old. You were one of the first people I met and we hit it off from the start. We had so many great adventures! We loved horses from day one! You had a horse, but I worked at a stables on Bealuh Rd. and we rode together for yrs! We listened to Jackie’s albums over and over again. We had sleepovers and walkie talkies. You always knew the combination to the locked cabinet! We had many first experiences together. Too many to name, but it makes me smile when I think back through the yrs! We went to our senior prom together, drove around in your Carmen Ghia, Mazda RX7, you loved your cars and always wanted to drive! You cut my hair for yrs., came to our party in Mason Neck right after you had Brent, you would visit our house when Brent was a baby. When I had my daughter I came to visit you! We rented rowboats, went to 4H fairs. As we followed along our chosen paths we didn’t see each other for quite awhile. I thought about you often but life sweeps you up and carries you away. Chris Parfitt was nice enough to let me know you were in hospice. I went to visit you and talk to you one last time. May God hold you in his hands. My condolences to your father, Bill, sister Jackie, sons Brent and Billy. Your daughter, sister, and mother was a special person, she loved life! I would describe Karen with this quote by Mae West. “You only live once but if you live it right once is enough!”
Until we meet again my friend. With love,
Cindy A.
