Bert, l am so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember how happy Karen was whenever I saw her. It was always nice to talk to her in the emergency room or at meetings.

Dear Bert and family, I am so saddened for your loss. I have known Karen for a long time and she will be missed by everyone that she touched. She had the ability to make you laugh and just feel better about yourself and the world with just her smile. I have a hard time accepting that she is actually gone. I pray that God will comfort all of you and give you strength. One thing I know for sure is that she is with God and that she will always be in my heart. With deepest sympathies.

Bert, Phillip, Kim and Kat,, we are so sorry for the loss of your wife and mother. She was an amazing woman and had a heart of gold. When we first moved to Enid, she went out of her way to make us feel welcome and at home. You were lucky to have her and I know you will hold close the many memories you made together.

Karen was one of the most precious people I grew up with. She was alway smiling and always kind. She was as beautiful when I saw her at our 50th High School Reunion as she was growing up. My prayers for God strength go out to her husband and her entire family. May God wrap his arms around each of you and give you supernatural comfort.
