Like so many has said, Karen was the most giving person ever. I will truly miss her. Until we meet again, my friend. I love you!
Unfortunately, I had lost track of Karen and Dennis and I was very sad to read Karen’s obituary in the Wichita paper. We had lots of fun time during our school days and I remember several parties at Karen and Dennis’ home. My deepest sympathies are sent with love to Dennis and the family.
Karen was the most giving person I have ever known. She was always ready with a shoulder and an ear. She loved her family and was always “there” for them but she always had room for friends. No matter how burdened her heart was conversation would be turned away from her problems and shifted by her to “how are you and your family?”
So many of her friends will miss her packages—-she must have had stock in the US Postal Service. EVERY holiday was remembered by Karen—I just wish I could hug her and tell her how much I miss her . I was getting ready to send her a small gift and I will share the greeting on the card: ” Friends Who Share From The Heart Are Never Truly Far Apart “. Karen always closed a conversation with “I will talk to you soon my friend”, so to Karen: I miss you my friend and love you and our friendship. Elaine
