So saddened to hear of Karen's passing. She was truly an angel on she is an angel in heaven. I have the happiest memories of the crazy times Karen and I had in high school. We became best friends and maintained that friendship over the years. Karen dealt with the challenges in life with love and dignity. I will miss her so very much. May she rest in peace.
