Dear Joyce, Janice, Bruce & Francis And To Ed, Christine & Jillian And GrandChildren:
I Am So Sorry To Hear That Karen Has Passed Away, Karen Was A Great Neighbour On Great Hill And We Use To Go On The Same Bus When We Went To School. Karen Was Always Full Of Life & so Much Fun To Be Around. I Hadn’t Seen Karen For A Few Years And Always Wandered What Or Where Life Had Taken Her. Then One Day A Lady & Her Husband Came Into Sobeys Store And Through My Check- Out. When I Looked Up I Could See That She Looked Familiar And When She Spoke I Knew Then Who It Was. I Was So Delighted To See Karen Again. Karen Was Such A Delightful Person And I Am So Glad We Were Neighbours. Cherish Her Memory And Tuck Them Close To Your Heart Because That Is Where Karen Will Be::: In Your Heart Always. I Lost My Sister:: Linda When She Was 62 And Everyday That I Think Of Her I Know She Is Close To My Heart. Karen Has Had A Rough Few Years But Is Now At Peace With No Pain. May God Grant Karen Eternal Peace Into His Beautiful Garden And May God Bless Each & Everyone Of You!!!

Peggy Ann (Freeman) Payzant & Husband Francis
Let The Healing Begin !!!!

Condolence from Scott Kennah on April 17th, 2018 4:08 pm

Ed, Christine and Jillian. I am so sorry to hear of Karen’s passing. She was a wonderful caring person and had a smile that lit up the room. When Ed introduced her to me at University I could tell right away that she was very special. She was such a proud mother and family always came first. I watched the video and it brought both a smile and a few tears but it captured a life well lived by a truly decent and kind person. Our sympathies from Tina Carolyn Mike and me. I am lucky to have known her.

Scott Kennah
