Not sure what to say?

I remember so many fun times with Karen & Mark. I also remember how Karen & Mark spoke to & about each other. It was with love, respect & admiration. And on top of all that absolutely no one looked better in clothes from Food Basket than Karen!!!:)

(John 14:1-3)

Remembering Karen on this day and all the great times we had together.

Karen was a lovely woman and is missed

I remember Karen as desiring a healthy life, and being so grateful to have such a healthy family. I am sorry to hear of her passing. I will remember her.

I last spoke with Karen at my home at the rehearsal dinner honoring the marriage of Sydney Wanetick to my son, Paul Motschall. I have kept the conversation and memory of her warmth and enthusiasm with me since then. We spoke of our families and particularly of her career as a Speech and Language Pathologist. While my daughter Katie was applying to graduate school, taking coursework and starting her career as an SLP, I often thought of Karen's warmth, enthusiasm and joy for life. May God...

Mark and family, I just saw the memorial for Karen in the UT today. As I was living in Ohio for the past 3 years, I did not know about your loss. I'm so sorry, but so very grateful that I had time to reconnect with Karen when Vance passed. She was a beautiful woman inside and out and please know how very sorry I am to learn of your loss. We had some fun times in South Mission- times that I will never forget! Kristina Starkey

We will always remember her beautiful smile and bubbly personality.

With our love,

Susan and Steve Norman

What an amazing lady you were. I will always treasure the friendship we had.
Remembering you always,

Dear Mark, Holly and Natalie,I just learned TODAY of Karen's passing. Life changes and my moving out of state put distance between us after 15 years of friendship and supporting each other as we raised our children. I could not be more sorry for your great and painful loss.
With Love,
Tina Davis (Avakian)
