Karen and Greg were my neighbors for many years. Karen was always very nice to me. My daughter Jenny and her daughter Angela played together a lot. So sorry to hear of her illness and death. Prayers for your entire family.

Karen was a wonderful lady with such a sweet spirit. She was so caring to her family and to all those about her. She will be missed.
I had not had much contact with her since childhood, but the few times I did see her it was special to talk about our past. She overcame many setbacks with her health, and other issues.
My prayers go out to her family.
