We grew up on the same street as Karlene and our parents were friends. When we were kids the Halverson Brothers construction did a lot of work on our dad's ranch in Mackay and we spent a fun summer riding horses and playing with Karlene. In later years Randy's wife was a RN at St. Benedicts and worked with Karlene who was a CNA. She was always the same, happy and friendly. God Bless You, Karlene.
