My deepest condolences to each family member.  Although, I didn't know Karen well, I loved her anyway.  I never saw her when she wasn't smiling, and I never heard her say anything negative.  She will be missed by all, as she touched the lives of many.  We can take comfort in knowing that in God's loving arms she is pain free and perfect!  Much Love, Rhonda and Roy Tucker
