Karen was a classmate of mine. We also shared the same birthday and would call each other on our birthday and have a good catch up on our lives. I enjoyed our conversations and will miss her.

My sincere sympathy to Karen's family. Karen was always at her mom's place keeping her company/caretaking when I would deliver meals there. She was always so nice and appreciative. May she rest in peace.

Karen always had a special place in my heart because of the fortitude with which she faced life in spite of what I assumed was rheumatoid arthritis. She always had a smile on her face when greeting someone and I admired her so much. She made the world a better place. May she rest In peace in God's grace.
