I love you Aunt Karen. I will always remember your love for fun, life, animals & being you. You could always find the light in the darkness no matter the situation because you wanted to see everyone smile.

I remember our last conversation, years back, when I visited you & we talked & cried for a few hours. You apologized for people you didn't need to & told me how you knew things & wish you could of done more & it was a conversation that I'll never forget. I always loved you for you & your simplicity. You weren't fake when there was fake all around. Thank you for the love you always gave me when you welcomed me into your family. ❤Rest in Peace. Give Uncle Chuckie, Uncle Bill, Gma & Gpa a kiss & a hug for me.❤ I know that you'll be so happy when you get to see them all again. Watch over us all, Love you, xoxoxo
