I was deeply saddened to hear of Karen's passing. Karen was a good friend of mine throughout high school in Three Rivers, MI. May your many happy memories of Karen help you find peace during this difficult time.

To karens family: Very sorry to hear of your loss. Karen was a student of mine when she was an undergraduate student at Marywood in the art dept. Karen was a special person, such a bright light and positive presence. Those of us who knew and worked with Karen at Marywood are saddened by this news and our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Dear Kelli and Kerri, I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mom. Your mom and I studied together at Marywood but had lost touch over the years. To my surprise, I had the pleasure of meeting her again at a parent teacher night at Sacred Heart in Carbondale (discovering that I was teaching art to her daughter Kelli). Please know that I remember your mom with great fondness and hold each of you especially in my thoughts and prayers. May God surround you with the love and support you need as you grieve the loss of the amazing woman you called mom.
