I just learned Karen passed today and was sad to hear the news. My condolences to the Kalb family. She survived Wendy by a couple years only:( As friends since before birth I hope they are both chatting in heaven now. May they both rest in peace.

I've known Karen for around 14 years now, both from a work and personal relationship. She's one of the kindest, smartest, and darn it; coolest persons I've ever known. We all just lost a wonderful lady.

For Norman & All of the Anderson Families - what a tragic, too early loss of our dear, sweet, and brilliant Karen. She was a friend I met while I worked at Xerox in the early 90's. We stayed friends as I moved to other places. Funny, witty, wonderful are only a few words to describe a lovely woman who we all love and miss. She is someone to be remembered always. Warmly, Katherine Huston

I went to school with Karen from about age 13 to 18, then saw her again at our 40th reunion. At that time, she continued to be the feisty, smart, funny wonderful person I knew as a kid. It's hard to believe she has left us, though not in memory. I am thinking of her family now, wishing you peace in a time of grief.

I met Karen when our business, Candle Krazy, did an event at the winery. She was amazing, like a friend you have known all your life. When she told me about her operation, etc. this summer, she seemed like all was going to be fine. I am so sorry to hear she has passed, the world has lost one amazing person. She will be greatly missed. My best to Kurt, Norman and all of Karen's family and friends.
