Reene So sorry for the loss of your dear loved one, Karen. Losing someone so special can be very difficult. I wanted to send a message from the Bible where God promises an end to death and sorrow: " And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4) God's word also speaks of a time when, "no resident will say: 'I am sick' (Isaiah 33:24) I hope these promises bring you some comfort. 09/09/2014 Wayne and Colleen Bromwell We are so sorry to learn the loss of your dear daughter and sister. We have to be out of town so unfortunately we can not attend the Mass of Christian Burial. Please know we are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Our love and hugs to all of you! 08/30/2014 Carol Rousseau Dear Robert & Family, I was shocked & so very sad to learn of Karen's passing. I have had the pleasure of knowing her for several years now and she was always warm & friendly and had a wonderful sense of humor! She would share her dreams with me and I always looked forward to seeing her. At one point Robert, she even asked me if I would date you....that was so her! No holds barred, she always said what she felt and I loved her for that! I don't know what to say to give you some sense of comfort in this awful time, because none of this even makes sense to me right now. She was taken from us much too quickly! The only thing I can take comfort in, is that she is at peace now with no more pain. Fly with the angels Karen, I will miss you! xox 08/29/2014 Carol Rousseau Dear Robert & Family, I was shocked & so very sad to learn of Karen's passing.
