Jeff and Kimma family. So sorry to hear about your mother. Your father and she ran around with Bud Myers and myself in the 60's. I remember when you guys were born. They were great people. Don't know if you remember my kids Becky and Lorie Myers. My heart goes out to you guys. Nancy

I grew up with Karen in Dana, Indiana. We became good friends and graduated in 1960. I moved away to Indianapolis, but returned 2 years ago. I was so glad to spend the last 2 years working with her in the Ladies Auxillary here in Dana. We will miss her greatly. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met.

To the family of Karen, my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the "Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort.”(2 Cor 1:3) One day soon, all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28, 29) May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

Jeff and Kimma,

I considered your mom one of my good friends. We spent a lot of time at the drug store together talking about 'things'. She worked hard at the fire house with the fish fries and chicken noodle dinners. I think she really enjoyed the fellowship she had with the auxiliary ladies. When she worked the cash register at the grocery store we would visit. I just have good memories of your mom and they make me smile.
