Paul and family, I didn’t know Karen very well but I do remember her being a talented guitarist at a young age (5-6 grade) for some reason I never forgot that about her. I do remember she was a bit sassy but a very considerate person.
My thoughts go out to all of you.

Karen is gone from our sight but not from our hearts. My sincerest condolences to Bobbie, Harry and Paul Vinci. To Kerri and all of Karen’s closest friends and acquaintances. Karen lived life as many of us do, navigating our way down whatever that path of life is and searching for her purpose. She worked hard and discovered her talents as a passionate and enthusiastic videographer and video editor. She shared her delight in cooking as well.
She was generous of heart with that which she believed in. She adored her pets and animals in general. She was fun and funny and a bright light in our lives.
It is difficult to grasp that we will not hear her voice or her laugh or see her smile again. She is free from life on earth and with the love of God now and on to her next journey.
I wish you farewell Karen and will always hold on to the best of memories.
