Karen was everybody's queen of hearts,she was my ace of hearts.As I look up the street I already miss a hug,a cup of coffee,,and a cookie,usually taking a few cookies home to share with Debbie.When I would bring her some spanish rice,she would return the bowl a couple days later,saying "You really need to make some spanish rice some day,it's been such a long time since you made any". She was a good friend to all,and I miss her dearly. Gene

Karen was a best friend all through childhood and high school. We attended the same church and shared so many wonderful memories together especially at Spencer Lake Bible Camp. We have still kept in touch over the years and I will miss her (and Guy's) delightful Christmas letters of all their adventures. They lived full, wonderful lives and now are in the presence of their Lord and Savior. At that I rejoice because they knew Jesus and had committed their lives to Him. I know she will be greatly missed and my condolences to her family, especially Sue, Steve, Gene, Eden and Shane. Still friends after all these years, Wanda

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
