Karen was only a young one when I lived in Cottonwood, Az., but my sister Antionette Smith and I both want to send our condolences to the family and especially Janice and Bert that we were closest too.

I so loved Karen. I know she is at peace and out of her pain. My love and prayers go out to the family. I look forward to God's Kingdom under Christ's rule where death, pain and sorrow will be no more. May our Heavenly Father comfort you all.

Karen and I would go for years without seeing each other but when we would "bump into " it was like we had just talkled yesterday..We would laugh and joke like we were still in High School sharing a locker. I loved her sense of humor..
