    I am so glad that I was able to spend a little time with Karen this past year when she joined our movie
    group (retired teachers). We loved working with Karen and are sending prayers of peace for your family.

    I met Karen at Arbor Heights Junior High. We became fast friends and were inseparable from 8th grade to graduation. In the last few years we had reconnected. I so enjoyed hearing of her love for her sweet John and was so saddened when he passed. Karen never did recover from his loss. But she so loved her children, step children and grand babies. We had planned to have lunch when the quarantine was lifted so imagine my shock to hear of her sudden passing. I will miss you my friend, my only consolation is that you are reunited with your earthly loves.
    Rest In Peace Karen

    It was heartbreaking to hear the sad news. My love and prayers are with the family.

    I love the picture of Karen in her t-shirt. She has the smile that I remember with great fondness. It was a great gift to spend time with her and John when they visited So Cal.

    She was my connection to the family and I will miss our correspondence. She reminded me of our time growing up together and how she was responsible for babysitting her bratty little cousin. I guess she was referring to me, but I don’t remember it that way. She’s leaving behind a beautiful, loving family. I know she’s happy to be with John, Uncle Joe and Aunt Dorothy (and all her Aunts and Uncles).

    I am sending my love and prayers to all of you.
