My life was blessed to have known Karon. We met many years ago when I had the distinct honor of caring for Mel and later Dolly. Karon never missed sending cards on Nurses Day or Christmas. I always looked forward to seeing her on Memorial Day at Forest Lawn. I will never forget the love and devotion she had for her parents. We should all be so lucky to have a daughter like Karon. I will miss her laughter, hugs and words of wisdom. The good Lord received an exceptional angel! God bless you Mel and family during these difficult days. My deepest sympathy, Wendy Dording

Karon...wonderful neighbor and such a kind heart. She looked out for others in our neighborhood. The special duo of Karon with Mel were great fun with laughs and always a good story or two...generous,fun; Karon lived life to the full. Now she will be looking out for everyone, from heaven's view. I will miss you dear.
