    The years that I hung out with Karen weren’t many, but they were our teenage years when friends meant everything. I’ll never forget all of the memories with Karen up the neighborhood. Concerts, parties, drive-ins, her making me and Laurie homemade mac n’ cheese, etc…but mostly just hanging out on Sherman Place talking, drinking, listening to music and laughing with friends. Karen will remain forever young in my eyes and I am sending my deepest condolences to John and all of her family and friends. Her spirit will always be with you and I’ll never forget her.

  2. So sorry for your loss. I’ve known Karen since high school and she was always a good friend. I remember the softball games on Sunday.
