To all those who loved Karen, and I realize there are many I am sorry for your loss. Karen was a wonderful woman with whom I loved spending time with. Whether it was watching movies, eating out, swimming or shopping. She was more than just my sister-in-laws mom. She was a friend and I will miss her.
Hugs to you all.
