I am really grateful to know more about Karna's life story. I think her life was a well lived life. She was kind to me when I lived in Oregon. I remember visiting her home and feeling welcome there. It seemed like there were always people and animals around the house and Karna. She loved having her kids and grandkids around her, and they gave her great joy. I saw her love for her church and her commitment to her church community. She was committed to her faith and lived out her beliefs. I met her through her wonderful daughter, Audrey, who is a strong, compassionate person like her mother. I send my condolences to her family in their grief.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Orin and family. Karna and her family have always been a part of our lives through Salem First Christian Church. In our younger years: youth groups and Silver Falls family camps, then through CWF, church leadership and hosting many weddings with Mark. Our parents were friends, we were friends with their children and our children with the Hirsch family. Thank you for sharing and making a difference in the lives of so many, Karna!
