    Karen was a great friend, neighbor, and big sister to a lot of us. She was a kindred spirit that would give anything to someone in need, especially her heart. She could always make you smile even when your heart wasn’t in it. She was loved by us dearly, and she will be missed. All our love to her family in this time of loss.
