Karen has been a dear friend to me for 47 years. I first met her when I and my family moved into our home on Kempton Rd. She appeared at my door with her two beautiful daughters and bringing something she'd baked. What a blessing! That was Karen. I will miss her so much. Denny and family, you're in my prayers.

Your mother helped raise us all as her own whenever we were near. For this I am forever grateful. She opened your home to us with love and we knew that warm feeling of comfort. We are all blessed to have had her in our lives. Love you all and prayers for all of the wonderful memories.
