I pray that you are able to find comfort in God’s promise of paradise where there will be no more pain and sorrow (Revelation 21:4,5)  and the many wonderful  memories of your loved one becoming a reality in the future resurrection in paradise.  (Acts 24:15).

  9. Dear Larry, Brian, Chris, and families,
    I am Karen’s cousin, and her passing brings great sadness. As children, we had wonderful times together at our grandparents’ farm in Ohio. And, although we didn’t see each other much as adults, I know how devoted she was to her family. I especially know of her care for her mother, my aunt Ruth, as we talked and wrote during the last years of Ruth’s life. May you find comfort in the love of family and your memories of Karen. Hers was a life well lived.
    Love, Susan

  10. Larry,

  11. Larry, Sorry to hear the sad news of Karen’s passing in seeing you at the library today. I will miss her brightness and friendliness. She was a bright spot for everyone who met her and spent time with her. You are lucky to have been close to her for so long.

  12. Larry, wish we didn’t live so far apart, would have loved to have visited with both of you more than we did. Still, Karen was a joy to know, she was indeed the bright spot so many have mentioned. Donna and I send our hugs and prayers, that you recall with fondness the years with Karen, and that her memory stays with you forever.
