  1. I met Karen in 7th Grade. She was so special and everyone loved her. She brought joy to all. Karen had a such a sparkling personality. She was witty, smart and successful. It has been such an honor and privilege to have Karen as a friend for 60+ years. We will miss Karen so much at all of our MRH gatherings.

  2. Karen was a special person. Little but mighty. So fun to be with such a cheerful person. I went to junior high, high school with Karen and have remained friends for all these years. Karen will be missed by many.
