To My "Other" Daughter-In-Law of My "Other" Son, Dearest Mandi, my sympathies that go out to you and all your family (your Dad) will not change the depth of the sorrow you are feeling. I lost my Mother almost 19 years ago and with the Lord's graciousness, in time the sorrow somehow subsides somewhat, but you will think of her every day and she'll be with you all the time and with your darling babies. You will tell them all the stories of their wonderful, loving Grandma each and every day of their lives so they will know her through you. If we can ever do anything to help you and Adam, please let us know. We love you all! Love, Your "Other" Family, Diane, Dave and Jeremy

I met Karen many years ago. She did my mothers hair for her. She did our hair for the 5 generation picture that we had taken in 1968. From then on we were all sold on Karen as a person and hair stylist. She was a friend to our entire family. When I lost my son 16 months ago she was there to see me and make sure I was doing ok. She did his hair when he was a kid and between them they came up with some really funny "do's" for him. I saw her a few months ago and she wanted to know how my mom was and she was planning to go to Arizona and was thinking of calling mom while she was there. I know your loss is great and in the future your memroies will be so important to you. She is a part of the memories in our family. Thank you for sharing her with all of us.

Dear Jim,Mandi,Greg and family We are both very shocked and saddened to hear of Karens passing.We looked forward to meeting up with you guys each time that we came to our home in Florida. Karen was exactly the same age as My mum and she was just like a mother figure "right next Door" each time we came over... My mum had just been talking about Karens "strawberry Shortcake " that she had made us all on one of our trips out there the very week before we heard the sad news... she will be greatly missed by all who knew her ...she was so warm, so friendy ,so kind , so proud of her family especially the Grandchildren and so Real .... I can't believe we only Knew her for 6 years, she always made us feel like we'd known her all our lives ... and treated us like Family ... our Thoughts and Prayers are with you all at this difficult time Rob,Ray,Laura n Scott
