Karen touched my heart in so many ways. She was to me a role model, mentor and inspiration. I was so blessed to have her as my sister in law, and she will always be a part of my life. Karen is like a guardian angel that will forever be with me. I love her so very much and always will. Karen thank you for being such a compassionate loving woman, beautiful inside and out.

I have known Karen since she was a roomate at the University of Wyoming with my sister, Kitty, Linda and Diane. She always had a smile on her face and made me smile. In 2004, when I was diagnosed with Cancer, Karen was the first to send me a note of encouragement. The last I saw Karen was in Minnesota a few years ago, when she and her good friend, Linda were there. My friends and I drove an hour or two to see them. When Karen said how nice it was for us to travel, I told her it was on the way..we were going to the casino to gamble on the way home. She laughed and immediately insisted on giving me money to gamble. She made me laugh. I hope the memories everyone share of Karen give comfort. She will be missed.
