Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will not be alone.” —Jiddu Krishnamurti

Whatever words I could write, they would never be enough. Karen was my friend in youth and we reconnected 7 ish years ago. Having her be part of my life as an adult brought me great joy. I will miss her laughter, her hugs, her love of the sun and her stories.
She was a special human who will me missed greatly.
Much love to Clayton, Lillian, David and all who loved her.

Thinking back to our last class reunion when she broke the news to me, the immediate fear in her eyes of what her future held, the helplessness I felt of not knowing how to respond … with hope which I held on to until I heard today from a classmate of her passing.

Fly high my friend … until we meet at our next reunion

I’ve been reading the condolences above, and it’s very obvious that Karen will be missed by many, and her memory will live on in people’s hearts. You must have done something right as a Mom to have raised a daughter who has left such a lasting impression on so many people’s lives!

My thoughts are with you, and I am keeping you in my prayers as you mourn your loss. Someday, perhaps we will understand the “why” that goes along with losing a loved one, but for now just treasure the good memories that you have of Karen and know that behind every condolence is a heart that cares.

Much love,

Lynn xoxo
