Register Book

  • Although our paths did not cross in recent years, Karen was a great friend of my wife and I. She served as a bridesmaid in our wedding in 1973. We shared many wonderful moments together, and could always rely on Karen as a true friend. Her broad smile always preceded her. We are deeply saddened to hear of her passing and extend our condolences to her family, particularly her mother Jacqueolyn, and her many friends that are grieving as we are. Karen has been called home to rest in eternity, with no pain or sorrow to embelish. She'll take her place as an angel in heaven as she was on earth. With Karen's passing, we lost a very dear friend. But, the memory of Karen, and her legacy of good will, will endure.
