Grant and I were thinking and speaking of Karen just this weekend. He said Karen has always been the nicest lady. I have always liked her.” I couldn`t agree more. What a testimony her life was of kindness and generosity. She leaves a great legacy.2 Corinthians Chapter 13 Blessed [be] God even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort;4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”
I can still see Karen`s beautiful face and smile. I was a Training Specialist at North Anna Training Center with Karen, and have always been impressed with her hard work quick learning of new tasks, and always her willingness to do it…whatever it took. She was a pleaasure wo work with. I am so saddened that she is gone from her friends and family, but know for sure that she is THE BEST and is in a very peaceful, happy place above. God bless you all.

In life, you encounter those who are givers and those who are takers. Karen was a giver! Her generosity, kindness, energy and loving spirit were exceptional.

Karen was such a sweet person. I had the pleasure of working with her at North Anna Training Center in the 80s and 90s. She had a big heart, a warm smile, and a great sense of humor. She always had so much love and happiness in her voice when she spoke of her husband and daughter. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
