Dear Mr. & Mrs. S, Stephanie, Jim, Lonnie and family,
As you know, I grew up with Karen and hung out with her and our group of buddies til I moved to the "big city" after 6th grade. I will always treasure memories of our sleepover parties at your house Mr/Mrs. S, and all the other crazy things we did. I am so glad you were close to my folks all these years. I am also glad that Karen and I reconnected in Madison a few times in recent years when I realized just how truly caring and special she was. To see what many others have shared in their experiences with Karen, it is so obvious she touched many in a similar way. What a great life that her girls can be proud of. She will be missed, but will be thought of so fondly. My condolences and love to you all.
