    There are no words that I can say to express my sorrow at the passing of Karen. I had the honor of working with Karen at King Science Center. She was an excellent teacher who gave so much hope and motivation to her students and co workers. Karen will always be remembered as an outstanding educator and family care taker. Hugs and prayers to her family at this most difficult time. May her memory always serve as a blessing.
