Karen was a loving soul. She enjoyed and accepted life as it was a gift to have. She really loved and enjoyed her family times. Karen would help any person in any way she could. She always smiled and gave a hug with the words attached “I love you” and she was always quick to say words like “I’m sorry” to anyone having a bad day in any way that she was around, She was just that type of loving caring human being.
