    Karen was a dear friend when I was in elementary school. Her Mom was our Girl Scout leader and I remember many wonderful times in their home and slumber parties at both of our homes. She was funny, kind, generous and had a wonderful smile. I remember her family as very close and wonderful people. I am so very sorry for your loss….RIP Dear Karen...
