Thank you for being so supportive and helpful during our MBUSI project. It truly made a huge difference. Your friendship and our time (lunches) in Germany meant the world to me. It was great to catch up and talk about family, life, and work. You touched my heart in so many ways. I am blessed to call you a true friend and am sure many around the world are as well. Although my heart breaks for your suffering and the grief your family is experiencing, picturing you being held in Jesus' arms warms my heart. God Bless dear friend.

I am still shocked by the news. It's hard to find the right words. Even though we haven't worked together in the last few years, I remember the wonderful years together very well. You were a role model for cosmopolitanism and your professional advice was always very valuable to me.

My honest condolences to Kari's family.
I am a Mercedes colleague from Germany, was working together with Kari for many years. We had so much fun together (see my photo from April 2013), I remember well sitting with her at a BBQ and fire place in the wildness of South Africa a few years ago.
It is so sad, I will never forget her.

You will be gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
It was such a privilege to work together with you at Mercedes and you are very vivid in our memories. Thank you for the love you brought to the world.
Our deepest sympathies are with your family who we wish healing and peace.
R.I.P Kari – we will miss you!
