We were so sorry to hear about Karen's passing. We loved her infectious smile and being around such a happy soul. She fought a courageous battle and was always positive. Sending Doc and Gregory positive, happy thoughts at this difficult time.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one, Karen. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and sorrow and has promised that soon, "death will be swallowed up forever."(Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again."(John 6:40) Until then, I hope the beautiful memories of Karen and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

Karen was the most genuine person I have ever known. Truely loved and left a deep imprint on my heart. Her smile could light up any room and will dearly be missed by all who knew her! Rest easy dear friend. Fly High with the Angels until we meet again
