Karen and I have been close friends for 66 years since 8th grade. She and I always had fun together and some mischievous times too. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and she and Bob were maid of honor and best man in Bill’s and my wedding. They were Godparents to our oldest and youngest children. I was her son, Bob’s Godmother and Bill is John’s Godfather. We may not have always lived close but always remained in touch often. When she and Len were married we camped together and traveled all over the country. What joyful adventures we had. Every summer, for 20 years, we spent a week together in Boulder Junction with the whole clan. We had great reminiscing lunches with school girlfriends. Karen was a very special friend and a beautiful light to all who knew her. She is a big loss to me and our family and friends. Her laughter and the wonderful memories will forever live in our hearts. Love you always dear sweet friend.
