Folks, many of you have met and shared laughs and even meals with Karen and I. She passed from this world today. The cancer she fought for two years took its toll and now her suffering is over. She was my wife and best friend for over 32 years. Facing tomorrow without her is an empty image for me. She brightened any place with her unwavering joy and good humor. If you knew her, think back on a time when she made you smile and be glad we had a time together.
