    I’m so very sorry to hear of Karen’s passing. I love Karen very much. We spent alot of time together. Laughed alot of laughs and cried alot of tears. Karen had a sharp wit and always had something interesting to say. She deeply cared for her children. And her grandchildren made her so happy. I’m comforted to know Karen’s not in pain anymore. Fly High with the Angels Karen. I’ll always miss you.
