Karen and I had memorable times together as high school friends. Often we stayed over night at each others home for pajama parties. Later in life, we wondered how our mothers put up with those late hours. After I moved from Minnesota, I visited her in Burnsville, with my sister, Carol, when ever possible. I always looked forward to those visits. While I was living in Massachusetts, she visited me and what fun we had as I showed her Boston, Concord and Lexington.
In July of 2006 I had a chance to see her again which, as I know now, would be my last earthly visit with her.

Farewell my friend. As I always say, "see you later"

My first comment was cut short by an accidental click. Karen was a great freind and e-mail pal. When she wasn't forwarding me something I became worried of her condition. I will miss her as a freind and a classmate and our telephone chats . Karen had an elephant collection of every size and shape that I admired and the last time I was there we counted them and there were 63. As before, whenever I see an elephant I will think of Karen. She commented that her house cleaner was glad that some of them were under glass. I have enjoyed the pictures of all of her genealogy and history. What a great Obituary Web Site. Her long research paid off.
Much Love & Sympathy to you Jeff, Michelle and Michael.. You will be in my thoughts .

Love, Carol

Part II - sorry -
Will miss Karen's recent e-mails to me and feel very fortunate that she has put together the extensive family tree. It's quite the treasure.
RIP Karen. No more suffering.
