So sorry I couldn't be there with you, but am with you in spirit, Cousin Karen & Alexia. Love you. Prayers are with you all. Aunt Virginia was very special to me, and I have loving memories of her & JD. Peace be with you.


Dearest Karen, Alexia and Drake, we continue our prayers for your comfort and wish your family healing in the days to come. You have given so much to Virginia during her life, and expecially during her illness. Being cared for and loved as you have done for mom and grandmother is the utmost that can be given.

Dear Karen: All your friends at Caldwell Opportunities send you good thoughts and prayers. We miss you.

Mama, You were an amazing woman! Always helping those in need and I carry on that tradition. You were our rock always been there when we needed you. It was truly a blessing to have you as a mom and friend. We had our moments like all mother and daughters, but we grew closer as we got older. Now take your journey to the golden streets of heaven and may you and daddy continue your "honeymoon." Love you always and forever. Your only child, Karen Denise Barlow

Thinking of you during this difficult time. You had the most amazing parents. I know they are happy together again. Love you.

May the precious peace that comes from Our Lord be with you.

Karen and family, I wish to express my condolences in the passing of your mother, grandmother, sister, etc. I know this is a hard time for you all but also you have the assurance that God will provide that grace that you need during this time. Sending my love and prayers to you all.
