Karen has truly earned her wings as God only chooses the best. I am so sorry for your lost, Jim. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers.
Dear Jim, Christy, Lisa and Jennie, We just want you to know that our prayers are with you and your family at this time. It was an honor to know your Mother and to celebrate birthdays with her. She most likely took care of our twins when they were in the NICU at Plantation Hospital in 2002.
We are just so saddened by her passing. She was always a source of light and positive energy. God Bless her and give you strength and solace.
Karen was truly one of the greatest beings I have ever met. I was fortunate to have called her my friend. Having worked with her for so many years in so many difficult situations I can honestly say all I remember is laughter and happiness. All my memories involving Karen are wonderful, happy and funny memories. What a wonderful person she was. My heart is saddened to know I will not see her on earth again but I know she is an angel in heaven and look forward to seeing her again.
To the family, always know Karen loved and worshiped all of you. She spoke about each of you with such great joy and love in her heart. You have an amazing legacy left by her. Continue to share that love in the hearts of your families. God Bless you.
Such a wonderful and thoughtful lady. I was so blessed to have her in my life when I needed her guidance growing up. She will me missed by so many of us. Mandy
Karen is and always will be my heart and soul. We never fought or argued. She was my light. I have no joy in me now. I will try to carry on with out you,my love but for how long with a broken heart. Our Kids all have families now and we raised them right, I see it in their eyes and the grandkids. God I love you and miss you. I hoped you liked James Rogers and Brittney singing. It brought a calm over me...pls wait for me at the gates
My loss was not to be able to hug her one more time. I was to meet Karen and Janet Adams for lunch last month. I couldn't, I'm crying. Time and space don't necessarily squelch feelings. Karen was my high-school friend. The kind of fun-loving, always smiling and kind type of friend. (Except when she got stung by the Man-o-War while surfing - rather...lying on her surfboard. I will miss. I know she is hugging her baby nephew who passed many years ago. My prayers are with so many right now.
God Bless your family through this time of sorrow. Karen brought such joy to this world. Such a remarkable lady always!!! So sincere, Sara Hays
A wonderful person with a big heart and my wife's best friend for 54 years. You are missed and our prayers are with the Wood Family..
A true friend, as close as a sister, you will be missed. I'm so glad I had you in my life.

We were in different countries for most of your married life, but we always kept in touch by letters and e-mail up until the day you left us. Thank you for being such a kind and understanding sister-in-law. Karen, you will now be joining your brother-in-law in that great sky above us.
Jim and family, I am so sorry for your loss. She had to wear big shoes, to fill all the lives she had around her. Please carry her memory with peace in your hearts. May she rest in peace.

Jim and family, I am so blessed to have had Karen in my life. She was so special in so many wonderful ways. I will always treasure my prayer shawl you personally brought to my home. I am using it to pray now for Jim and all the girl's. Thank you for always caring about me and my health issues. Thank you for your sweet FB messages and emails. It is so hard to write this. Love you Karen. Always will. xoxo
What a wonderful woman you were Karen, you were there for me when no- one else was, you were the one that welcomed in my 3rd son, and gave me peace when I was so alone! I am glad I knew you as you were the biggest hearted woman I've ever known! I know you will be missed!
What a wonderful woman we have lost, but such a beautiful angel now in heaven and watching over her family now! Karen had the very biggest heart of anyone I've ever known!! I'm glad I was blessed to have known her, if just for a short while! She was there for me when no-one else would be!!! Rest in the Loving arms of our Heavenly Father Karen!!!!
Love you and will miss you so much, Karen. You were a wonderful friend. My condolences to Jim and the girls.
