I am sorry I could not make the visitation and funeral. I am so sorry for your loss. Karen was such a fun loving person. We had a lot of fun times together. We used to do donuts in the Walmart parking lot after it closed at night and it was slick.... I told her one time I could walk faster than her truck went and I had to get out of the truck and walk a block... in the cold weather.. :) She was a great person. A very caring person.
Once again, I am very sorry for your loss.
