    Karen, I’m going to miss you dearly. Especially our long talks. I told you things I just couldn’t share with anyone else. You were such a good listener.
    You’ll be making your famious potatoe salad in heaven.

    I am so sorry for your loss and I will continue to pray for the family. May the knowledge that she is now with her Heavenly Father give you comfort. God bless you all. I love you with all my heart.
