    Karen was, in my memory, a witty and loving friend. We shared a lot of experiences and a love of horses that may have bordered on unhealthy. Her laugh is forever etched in my brain as what I have come to know as the sound of pure joy. I am so glad to have shared space and time with Karen. Love and comfort to all who knew and cared for her.
