Not sure what to say?

Every day that I look at my son, I think of how much I loved Mrs. Young. If it wasn't for her I don't what or how my life would have turned out. Mrs. Young was a true Blessing.

Graham and Jason,the two were young children when I first met your mother. Mrs. Young was my teacher at Duncan. She was a very special lady and inspired me so much. I moved away from and back to Salisbury and always wondered how she
was. I will truly miss her and with God and Prayer you all will be protected.

One of the most wonderful people I have ever known..her smile...her passion..her spirit...lives in all that knew her.

Mrs. Young was my hogh school guidance counselor at East Rowan. I can still hear her distinct voice. You are in my thoughts at this difficult time.

To Karen's family, I am so sorry for your loss. She was my guidance counselor at Knox and I always thought highly of her.

Jason, Laura and Zachary I am very sorry for your loss.

Graham and Jason and your families, loved Karen and will miss her terribly. I stand ready to assist in any way with memorial service or anything else that would be helpful.My deepest sympathy goes out to you all. Mary Martin Little

Thoughts and Prayers are sent GODBLESS

My Mom (Doris Brownlee) and Karen were good friends for a very long time. As I remember, it began in AAUW. Karen was a presence in our lives, and will be missed.
