Ever since I heard the news that Karen “moved on” it's been – surreal and I just keep looking at photos and reminiscing with friends – there are so many. To see her name listed in the obits today makes it so real and I cannot find the words to express my sorrow to the entire family. Karen is such an incredibly warm, funny, loyal, trustworthy person that I have had the pleasure of calling my dear friend.
John, Samantha, Jack – I pray that you find strength and comfort in your family and friends that surround you, support and love you. To the entire Phipps and Giordano families, I send my deepest condolences and to all of our friends, I along with you feel this pain and pray that we keep Karen alive forever in all of our memories. God Bless you Karen – every time I step foot in the sand I will remember you and pray you are happy and at peace. I will love you forever. Nancy Engel
