To the family, I wish to express my condolences. Now Karen has the opportunity to be one of the "meek" ones that the Lord says will inherit the earth. ( Matt 5:5). Respectfully yours, GH

My sincerest condolences to your entire family on your loss. It's been a joyous 5+ years of working with Karen and listening to all of the wonderful stories of her family and looking at pictures of Bryce daily. I'm so glad to have known her and proud to call her my friend. Though I'm saddened by the loss, I'm thankful that she's no longer in pain and is now in the bosom of her Father. May her lovely vibrant soul rest in perfect perpetual peace, in the name of Jesus.
