All I can see is her beautiful face, filled with quick wit, and a laugh that you couldn’t help smile at. Her days with Lucy during little league were such happy times. I’m so sorry for her passing. To all of her family, I know she will be the brightest star in the sky. 

I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Karen. My most sincere condolences to the Family and all who love her and are grieving. May she rest in peace and be reunited with other loved ones in Heaven. Prayers for healing and comfort during this very sad time. Love and hugs.

Karen you were my other half growing up . We shared so many good times there was not a day that I wouldn't think of you. Love you sister forever and always.

Haven’t gotten to see you since we were kids, but I miss your infectious smile.  You always made me laugh. You will be missed. 
Love you friend,
Sarah Hohstadt 

I am so sorry, I will be praying for comfort  for you and your family. 



Pam and family,
We send our prayers and love to you.

I sit here and think of all the laughs Karen and I shared.  She would make a goofy play and I would get ready to get after her and she with her braces smile would look at me shrug her shoulders and we would both have a laugh.  Pam thinking of you thanks for sharing.
