I am saddened beyond belief of the news of Karens passing. This was a hard day today learning of this news. I have so many wonderful memories of her, such as her sweet smile, and beautiful eyes, which always brightened my day when I was by her side. Her subtile humor and laughter made things always a little lighter for me. We shared many beautiful, warm memories which I will always cherish. Her soft spoken voice and demeanor calmed me whenever I needed it the most. I remember the times we shared together, as I will never forget them or her. She was my love, fiancée, confidant and friend, and I will never forget what we shared together as we had a very deep, close relationship. She will remain always in my heart and mind, and it will always be with love. She was courageous throughout all her setbacks and had a positive attitude and zest for life through it all. I would like to express my deepest and sincerest sympathies to Jessie, Eric, Greg and all of the immediate family. Rest in peace my dearest love, you will always remain in my heart and mind forever.
