Dear Karens'Family, I cannot say how very hurt you all must be right now. I have loved Karen like an additional daughter. My girls and Gails' girls were sister/cousins. We spend many years playing together as families when the girls were young. I too know that Karen has workded hard for her family and others and now she is in a place where she will be happy and at peace with a healthy spirit and will continue to be of service to all that are now with her. All of us now need to live a life as Karen would have lived. Honor her by becoming a stronger better person. Best of Wishes to you all, with love, Aunt Linda.

Dear Family:

Karen was like another sister to me being so close in age and spending lots of time together in our elementary years.

I have fond memories of Karen when we used to spend our birthdays together, play or hang out at each other's house, and go to Flaming Gorge with Grandpa Doug, Grandma Chloe, and the rest of the Monahan gang.

Although I will miss Karen dearly, I know those who have passed before her are welcoming her with open arms, big smiles, and lots of hugs and kisses, especially Sherry. But, let's not forget the sense of humor of Doug and Chloe as well.

May you find peace knowing she is now at rest.

I love you, Karen.
