Dearest Karen and David,

Please know that you are still in our thoughts and prayers continually. Karen, your mom was so precious and we loved her. We think of you especially as you have passed each milestone in time so far without your beloved mother. First, it was one week, then two, then three, and now more than one month. This is a tremendous loss and we are grieving with you, even though we rejoice in the confidence of where she is. All our love, Diana and Tom

Karen and Dave,
Just wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss but know that your mom is now in a better place. Its extremely hard to loose a parent but when you watch their quality of life diminish you know it was the right time for God to take her to Him. Please be comforted in knowing she is in good hands and a much better place.

If I can help in anyway, please let me know, always remember you come from a very big family and we all love you and are here to offer support and comfort. REST IN PEACE AUNT ETHEL

Dear Karen, Dave, and Karen's Family,

We are so sorry to hear of this passing. We know and love Karen and are aware of how much care she has given to her mother, and how difficult some of the times have been as Mrs. Alexander neared the end of her life. We hope that after the height of grieving passes, the family can focus on the happiest memories and truly celebrate her long life. The photos are wonderful. Thank you for providing these for visitors.

With love, Claudia & Paul Brookes

Dear Karen,
I just read about the death of your mother. Your mother is at peace now and you so lovingly took good care of her and made her last months more comfortable.
Our deepest sympathy goes to you and your family.
Love, Nancy & Earl Young
