  9. Karen and I were friends from early childhood, all thru school, raised our kids together and continued on thru our adults being the best of friends. She always had that sweet smile just like her Mom had. When she found out she had this cancer she didn’t give up. She was such a witness for Christ and encouraged many people to seek the Lord! Rest In Peace my fiend because you earned those wings you are now wearing! Love ❤️ you! See you again some day!
