Karen, This is so sad to lose you. I will miss our phone conversations and all the advice you have given me. We have so many beautiful memories. God has you in his keeping, but I have you in my heart. I will love you forever. You will never be forgotten. Love, Myrna

My Nenee was the sweetest, most caring person I’ve ever known and I’m going to miss her so much. She gave me such amazing advice over the years that I will never forget. She was more than my grandmother, she was my best friend and the only person I could be my true self around. She was my peace and my safe place. Things won’t be the same without her. Gone but NEVER forgotten. You’ll live on forever in my heart.

Memories may fade over time, but, my sister is more than a memory, she will always be part of me.
Jake, your Mom was so proud of you and your family. She appreciated so much the caring, support and love that you, Michelle, Kathy, Robert and Angel provided, especially during these past few months. Little Madison brought special joy to her heart. May fond memories of the wonderful times of joy and love that you shared, help to bring peace and comfort through this difficult time. Rest in peace Karen, I love you forever. Love, Sheila & Dan "Spirit to spirit and heart to heart, sisters forever together and apart."
