I have no words to offer that will ease the pain of losing your beloved; only God can soothe such grief. Karen will always be in my heart and I will always remember her as one of those beautiful human beings who sincerely wanted to and actually did make a difference in the world. Please accept my sincerest and deepest sympathy.
Dear Danny & Geoffrey,
Words can't express how sorry I am to learn Karen was sick and has now passed. She was one of my favorite customers at my store, but much more than that, we truly loved her! I even remember the first time I was I met to her. We were both expecting our 1st babies and she recommended her pediatrician (which I was happy I trusted her recommendation). That was it ... I was hooked on Karen! Dear, Sweet Karen ... I am sorry I didn't know you were sick! I will never forget those fabulous hugs! Danny & Geoffrey, I will keep you and your family in my prayers!

Mrs. Rodriguez you was my daughters math teacher this year. You always had a smile on your face no matter where I seen you. Hailey is very upset that you passed away, but we are happy you are no longer in pain. Rest in Peace.
Our prayers goes out to the family. She was my daughter's Bridgett Mayer nanny. She is very sadden. I didn't know her, but I believe she was a good and kind person and had a heart of gold. May she rest in peace and she is with the Lord in heaven. She is not in any more pain. She is in a better place than we are now. Don't never say good-by, but I will see you later. She is walking on the streets of gold.
Aunt Kay, words can not express how wonderful of a person you were one couldn't help be happy and feel the love that came from you, always making things just feel so peaceful and warm.. I remember as a child sitting on mommies floor with you reading a book to me no one can tell a story like you, you made me feel like I was in the story. I have many more wonderful memories as you were a wonderful aunt.. Uncle Danny and Geoffrey my deepest sympathy and heart are with you, the only comfort there might be is she isn't suffering anymore.. Kay you will he missed by so many and your memory will live on forever because everyone you came across will remember you.. love you forever & always your LillieBeth

To: Danny and Geoffrey, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy and prayer to your family. As former principal of Ellender Middle School, I had the privilege of knowing and working with Karen; she was an inspiration and positive influence on all whom she met.
May she rest in peace.
Danny and Geoffrey,
We are sorry for your loss. Karen's surely a bright light in Heaven.
What a wonderful teacher!! She was truly one of the great ones. Just saw her at the holidays and am still shocked by her death.
TO DANNY AND GEOFFREY,
"IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY AND MEMORIES A LANE, I WOULD WALK RIGHT UP TO HEAVEN AND BRING HER HOME AGAIN"
KAREN WAS AN AMAZING WOMAN, SHE GAVE HER ALL TO EVERYONE -- HER FAMILY, HER STUDENTS AND SHE WAS DETERMINED TO GIVE TO EVERYONE A RICH AND FRUITFUL LIFE. AS COUSINS WE WERE CONNECTED HEART TO HEART AND DEATH CANNOT KEEP UP APART, FOR SHE WILL ALWAYS LIVE IN OUR HEARTS.
Dear Geoffrey, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Karen is in my fondest memories. Pat Riche
Truly a passionate teacher! I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Rodriguez at St. Ville Academy; She always had an encouraging word.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss her greatly.
I will miss your smile the most. you had one of the best, but I feel confident that it will live on through Geoffery. Your love has been one of the greatest gifts that you have given and I am proud to say that soooo many people have been able to be touched by it. Your heart is bigger than this world. My heart breaks that I never got to tell you goodbye, but my heart also knows that you are not in anymore pain and for that I am very grateful. This world was always a better place because of you thank you for giving all of yourself for all of our needs. I will miss you forever, and love you as well....

"Sorry you left us so soon. I will always have fond memories of you in the halls at St.Ville Academy, your dedication and love for the children there. Rest in peace sweet soul"... Beryl Harris
It was truly a blessing to have Karen as a friend and a co-worker and part of our St. Ville Family. She always tried to see the positive side and the good in everyone. She was dedicated and strived to help her students to realize that they could be anything that they were willing to work to be. She will be dearly missed. Kathy Hornosky
Karen enriched my life both personally and professionally as my Purple Sister. She sparkled bright through her students, "ST. VILLE SHOOTING STARS -- NOW HEAVEN BOUND YOU ARE..." May God bless and comfort you Danny and Geoffrey
I remember when I had your class last year we used to have so much fun but I love you so much and I remember when I hugged you everyday when you were here but your in a better place now
Mrs.Rodriguez was one of the best teachers that I have had the pleasure of working with at St.Ville Academy. She gave so much of herself to the student there. I can remember going into her classroom on her planning period and talking to her when I was upset about something. She always made me look at the situation differently. She wanted the student of St. Ville who were two and sometimes three years behind to be sucessful not only at school, but throught out their entire lives. God bless Mrs. Rodriguez, she was truly a blessing to have as a co-worker.
Mrs Rodriguez was an awesome teacher I know it was hard loss for her family rest in peace we'll miss you.
Dear, sweet Karen!
I'm still in disbelief at the recent news of her passing. It's been said your life flashes before you as you leave this earth, but my life experiences with Karen continue to flash through my own mind, from the moment I introduced myself to my new neighbor in Port Arthur...both of us newly displaced from our families because of our husbands' new careers...through all the important and not so important times, through the happy and not so happy times of our lives. I still get a chuckle out of her saying that Ted was hooked on LSB! :) She wore all her hats with pride, passion, and immeasurable love...wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, godmother, teacher, friend, Christian. To say she will be missed is an understatement. We were all blessed for having had Karen in our lives. Rest in peace, my precious friend! I'll forever hold your memory close in my heart.
One couldn't know a nicer person then Karen. She will be missed. She was beautiful.
Danny & Family,
I send my condolences during this tough time. It sounds like many pleasant memories will live on in the hearts and minds of the many she touched.
I still can't believe you're really gone. I keep having these moments when I think "I need to call Karen" but I cannot. You were always so close to me, my children and grandchildren. You were such a big part of our lives, and we are already missing you so much. I can't imagine how the rest of our lives will be without you. I know no matter what I say here it will not be enough to express how I feel about you or the tremendous loss I feel. How could it? You were my sister and my best friend. You have taken care of me since before I can remember. I love you more than I could ever say. I'm never going to get over you leaving far too soon, I'll miss you everyday for the rest of my life.
Geoffrey and Danny I love you guys, and if either of you need anything please call.
We are so sorry for your loss. Your family will be in our prayers!!!
Karen will be missed. Parying for the family. She was, is a very good and loving person.
I had the honor to teach with Karen at Ellender Middle School. She was an excellent teacher and cared deeply about children. She was also one of the nicest and most decent people I have ever known.
If I loaded the photo right, this is Karen demonstrating how to make stained glass windows for a Renaissance Festival for the students.
I will also miss catching up with her at Regan's hair salon.
My condolences to her family. She was a beautiful person.
My heart goes out to Geoffrey and Mr. Rodriguez. Karen was a very special and beautiful person who was greatly admired! My prayers are with you. Arlene Reynolds (Gretna, LA)
I love you so much. You have always been like a mom to me and I will never ever forget you. Uncle Danny and Geoffrey my deepest condolences to you both. Heaven has another angel to watch over us. I love you Aunt Kay.
Aunt Kay always gave the best hugs. They came from her heart and you knew that they were filled with love. We will truly miss her. Our hearts go out to you, Uncle Danny , and to Geoffrey, and to the rest of the Parria and Rodriguez families. Much love. Little Sara and Tom
My sincere condolences to the Rodriguez family ..
Thanks for making me feel like the GREATEST Assistant Principal in the world! Thanks for touching so many lives! Thanks for making Truman Middle School a GREAT place to teach and learn! We're missing you!
I never knew life without you around. You and Danny started dating when I was just six months old, so you are more my sister than my sister-in-law. You were always so wonderful to me and then to my kids....words cannot express how much I loved you and how much I will miss you. I just wish I could get one more of those incredible hugs you always gave me.
Danny and Geoffrey, I love you both so much and I am here for you and anything that you need. This happened so fast that it is hard to believe and the pain is almost unbearable. But I know that she isn't suffering anymore...and for that I am grateful.
To Karen my friend,
Thank you for always being part of my children's lives. You were one of my first friends when I moved here 46 years ago. I will always love you and I will miss you terribly. Danny and Geoffrey my heart goes out to you and all my love. Karen was a wonderful person.
I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
