My heart is breaking for Brad, Kelly, Ann Dee, Dalton, David, Danielle, James, and the rest of Karen's lovely family and community.

Karen was an inspiration and a bright light to me when I was young, as she was for so many people.

In high school, she pointed me toward books that opened my mind and influenced the career path I chose. She actively supported me during my very vulnerable transition to collegeholding my hand (literally) while I filled out college applications, helping me find jobs during summer break, cheering me on with thoughtful emails during my anxious freshman year, and sharing endless glasses of grapefruit juice from her downstairs fridge and her family's beach house in Florida.

Karen had the rare gift of really "seeing" people. Around her I felt appreciated, and she encouraged qualities in me that I might not have been bold enough to develop on my own, like a passion for writing.

Karen was a beautiful role modelindependent, artful, intelligent, curious, complex, and deeply compassionate. She showed me it was possible to think for yourself and stand on your own two feet as a womanall while prioritizing and supporting those you love.

Karen, you influenced my life in so many ways, and I'm endlessly grateful for the time I spent with you, Curtis, and your family.

We'll all miss you dearly.

We will miss you terribly Karen/Gam. I'll always be extremely grateful for the wonderful ways in which you supported and loved Andrew' & Dalton. Until we see you again, it brings some peace knowing you're with your beautiful boy Curtis. Rest in Peace. Amy
