    The world has lost a lovely, gentle soul. I’m deeply saddened by her death, but so grateful for having known Karen. My life was much richer for having had her in it. Praying for peace and comfort for you and Jamey, now and in the days to come.

    I have known Karen since the mid 1960’s. We were co-workers in Display at a retail chain in Washington, D.C. I was fortunate to be her neighbor in the apartment complex where she lived in Arlington, VA. Karen and I not only shared an interest in Display, but drawing and painting as well. We often went on sketching trips together. She was a wonderful and kind sole. I will miss her terribly.
