Dear Friends and Family of Karen,
I just now learned of Karen's passing. Karen was a dear friend who I am terribly sad to have lost touch with when she, Lonnie and the girls moved to Costa Rica. Karen and I got to know each other living at Lothlorien Coop in Madison, and remained friends after college and when we both lived in Boston. She was in my wedding.
As so many others here have said, Karen was such a caring, loving and thoughtful person. She was the perfect friend -- fun, adventuresome, insightful and supportive. Her capacity to love, which you so beautifully spoke of in her obituary, really captures what was so very special about her. I know what a deeply committed and loving sister, daughter, partner and mother she was.
I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you, Lonnie, and your girls are managing to carry on, and have found comfort in the warm embrace of family and friends who love you all.
My condolences to you all.
