  3. Years ago our previous employer gave me an opportunity I couldn’t pass up; my first job in the FM area. Looking back on that day 6 years ago I would never have guessed Karen’s knowledge, wit and personality would lay the foundation for several years of success within the business. I made sure to share my appreciation with her face to face over the years whenever we crossed paths.

    One thing she always said was that a lot of success I had achieved was because of myself. It seems silly but without that foundation Karen created to reach higher, to do well and care about my jobs impact, I may not be where I am today. I’ll miss you, Karen. You cared and so did I.

  4. Karen- you were such a beautiful person. I always enjoyed talking to you when we worked together. I can’t seem wrap my head around this. Sure going to miss your beautiful soul. Your were such an amazing lady! Your smile and laugh was so contagious. Fly high my friend.

  5. Karen was my very best friend in grade school at Central Cass, & we continued our friendship for a year or more as penpals after I moved away to South Dakota at 8 years old. I had not seen her since we were kids, but seeing her picture brought back so many WONDERFUL memories. What a beautiful girl who will always remain alive in my heart.
