I'm deeply saddened and sorry for your loss. Please know that you're all in my thoughts and prayers. Your mom was an amazing person and a good friend and I will miss her dearly.

Mary, I'm so proud of you. When I first met you at work I didn't know what to think of you because you were a little bossy, outspoken and you like to tell me how to do my job, lol. We worked together for many years and each day I've gotten to know you my heart warmed up. We shared good times and bad times and I would not trade it for anything. We had so many memories together at Jansport. We laughed, and we cried, and we shared secrets of our lives that we would not share with anyone else. I remember when you use to let me draw on your arm and you told Bruce that you've gotten a tattoo. I remember when we dressed up for Halloween at work as characters from the Wizards of Oz. I remember our Christmas party at work and you and I bought each other pajamas and guess what, I still have the pajama and I still wear it. I remember our friendship date at Victoria's. I remember when we would hang out at Flag Stone after work and you, Patti and I would play the coin machines and Patti would always win and we would be happy for her but secretly, we weren't because we wanted to win too, lol. Patti, if you're reading this, we meant well, lol. I remember when we got into a dispute at work, and I will admit it, I'm stubborn too. Things got heated up and I called you the B word. You didn't talk to me for a week. I was sorry then and I'm sorry that I called you the B word. You're probably laughing about this now from heaven, lol. But, what I remember most is you had a heart of gold, you were kind and caring, nurturing and loving. You were very supportive of your friends and you were there for me by my side when my dad passed away. My heart is heavy and no words can describe how I'm feeling. Friends may come and go but you never left because you made such an impact in my life. You taught me to not give a rats of what people may think of me. You taught me to stand up for myself. You taught me that it's okay to be vulnerable, but most importantly, you taught me that it's okay to be myself, and who gives a damn of what others may think, lol. I want to thank you for being a part of my life.
The last time I saw you we had lunch at Golden Corral, I said you looked great and we hugged goodbye. Mary, you will always have a place in my heart, and I will never forget you. So, goodbye, my dear friend, I will miss you. Just know that heaven just got edgier with a touch of grace and style, and spice, too lol. Thanks for all the wonderful memories.

Your friend, Wa Meng

Mom, you may not have been my birth mom, but you were always there! You let me basically live with you when I needed a place to go. I always felt your love for me, I hope you felt all the love I have for you too!

Dear family and loved ones, I was sorry to read about the death of Mrs. Karnopp. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God “will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and that He will bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones (John 5 : 28, 29) . May “the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,” comfort you during your time of sadness (2 Corinthians 1: 3).
