It feels so wrong to be reading your obituary. So unnatural. You had so much potential. You were so full of life. I still can't believe you're gone. Everyday, I have something I see/do, and I think, "Man, Kareen would think this is funny" or "Kareen would like this" and I get ready to call you, and then I remember I can't. It sucks. You were my first friend; You were the one I told everything to; and you were the one who knew EXACTLY what I was talking about, understanding every feeling I felt, every word I said. No one will ever come close to replacing you. No one will ever forget you or the impact you made on his/her life. You are truely an amazing person, and I will cherish all the memories I have of you and with you. And I will do whatever I can to help the family in this difficult time.
