To Karen's family we're sending sympathy, thoughts and prayers. We didn't know Karen, but felt we did from knowing Terri and Beverly. They always were a very close knit family and we are so very sorry for your loss.

I’m sending my love and condolences to a sincerely great person. She was one of the best. When I visited the dentist she had such a calming Way and was able to make my anxiety go away. To all that knew her , we were blessed to call her a friend. We will always remember her . She helped me so much when I lost my husband and talked about retiring in Florida . Guess we will have to use plan B. I’ll see you in heaven.

I went to high school with Karen. I have not seen her since we graduated in June 1974. But I wanted to say what a nice girl Karen was. She was always so sweet and caring -- she always stood out to me because of that. I feel so sad that she is gone at this young age. My condolences go out to her family and loved ones. I will always remember you with fondness, sweet Karen.
