Karen was a family girl. The best memories I have of her was with her family(The Antell's) and our family (The Flaherty's) at her home in Rochester for our annual lobster cookout! Tractor rides for the kids, pool and Ping-Pong in basement, trampoline jumping and roasting marshmellows.....it was fun...she was always smiling while waiting on all of us. We will miss that smile. Sincerely, Kathleen (Flaherty)Lyczynski
