Dear Bill and family. I was so sorry to learn of Karen's passing. I have many fond memories of Karen participating in Parent Activities when Josh and Jay were in school. She was a kind, loving and hard working person. Karen was always there with a smile and her laughter was contagious. May you find comfort in your many wonderful memories together. Kim White
