To the Hedges and Yerboah Families,
We were shocked and very saddened to hear about Kari's passing. Many of us at Harrow High remember her fondly as a very capable student and talented athlete. I had the pleasure of catching up with her last spring when she did my echo-cardiogram at LDMH. As a teacher, it was wonderful to meet Kari again as the lovely professional woman she had become. My sincere condolences.

To an amazing family whom I had the pleasure of being a part of most of my life. Who took part in babysitting my kids and whom I had the pleasure of playing hockey with. I mostly loved celebrating Kari's first goal on the ice. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and Kari will be deeply missed.
