I was so sorry to hear of Karen´s passing. I wish I could attend her funeral today but I am in NY for my Dads Celebration of Life. Karen and I had so many fun and special times when our children were little. She was such a sweet and giving person who will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Rob, Reilley, Ethan and all her family and friends. RIP Karen

So very sorry to hear of Karen's passing. I was a Lil Sis with Karen at Radford and ran into her occasionally when I was still living in Lynchburg. Sending prayers and hugs to the family. Please let me know if there is anything I can help with.
