So sorry to hear of your loss. You have our deepest sympathy.
So very sorry to hear of Karen’s death. My sympathy to her son, sisters and brother. Makes me sad to think that I have lost a cousin that I really didn’t know. Unfortunately many miles separated us from a young age. Her Mom (Florine) was my favorite aunt on my dad’s side of the family. RIP Karen and know that I loved you cousin!
That is a great picture of Karen. She will be missed but her laugh I will continue to hear, I’ll remember the late night talks and her words of wisdom. She always seemed to be a phone call away when needed. She raised a great son and a beautiful grandchildern. She adopted the rest of us misfits. I thank God, she was part of my life and that she has found peace.
