We are not in Fairfield but heard that God had called your wonderful companion. Karen was a great lady and together you were a great couple. She would want you to continue your life. Both of you are in our thoughts and prayers

Couldn't believe it when I checked the obituaries this morning. Karen was such a great colleague and friend. It's hard to imagine a person so full of life has left us. Please accept my sincere condolences.
