I was so saddened to learn of Karen's passing. She will be missed by so many.
Back in our college days, Karen was the one who understood long before the rest of us did, that family was most important. I am thankful that she and Mike raised such a caring and supportive family together. It must have been a very difficult journey for all of you this past year. May you find the peace of God in your hearts, knowing that Karen is still in good hands.

Karen was a wonderful example of the love of Christ in her family, friends and to those who did know Christ as their Savior. She will be missed.
