    Our sincerest condolences to Karen's family. As parishioners of St. Mark Catholic Church, Sil and I sat next to or near Karen at many a Sunday Mass .We admired her diligence in seeing to the spiritual wellbeing of her young family, knowing many times she was exhausted and probably coming off a late night at the job.I had the pleasure of working with Karen at Britthaven for several years and found her always cheerful and caring.She spoke lovingly of her family and Sil and I introduced her to our children when they came home for Christmas this year. They, too, were pretty amazed at her happy disposition, despite her illness. If she was in pain, no one knew. Know you are all in our prayers .

    Dear David, Joseph and Colleen, I am very sad. I just want you to know that your mom was a great friend and a great nurse. She was always genuinely glad to see all of us classmates at school, in the dorm, and in our rotations together. I don't think anyone of us worked harder or valued her degree more than your mom. She seemed to connect with the patients (and with us) so easily, and to really put them and us at ease, right from the start. We trusted your mom, and with good reason: she brought out the best in everyone, hard work or not. I have been to a lot of weddings, and I can say that I've seen few brides genuinely as happy as your mom was on her wedding day. That was evident in Karen's efforts to send us all pictures of you when you were babies, despite the fact that she was probably very tired from being a mom and working. I can tell from those letters that your dad and you were everything to her, and I know she would want you to take extra good care of yourselves since she can't be here for you. Take care of each other and always remember the good times, even though it is a tragic loss.

    When I spoke of 'Karen" to my four children, my youngest seven year old daughter said " Mom, I think your friend, Karen was a Living Saint. My children never met Karen,but they were in awe of her presence on earth; told them all about my friend, Karen whom I've known almost 30 years. She touched the lives of everyone she came in contact with. Always upbeat,looking at the positive side of life even through the adversity of Cancer. Her college girlfriends were able to gather together with her this past February and have a memorable great weekend. Karen constantly laughed at anecdotal memories from our past together. She will be greatly missed. Her loving friend, Karin

    To all of Karen's family and friends: I am greatly saddened by Karen's passing. She will be greatly missed but not forgotten. I am a fellow nursing student from Russell Sage College,and got to know Karen through nursing. Karen is a very caring and compassionate young woman, who enjoyed life's offerings. She always had a smile on her beautiful face each day, even when the going got tough.Karen became a wonderful nurse and mother.May she rest in peace.

    So many wonderful things come to mind when I think of Karen: 1. She was an optimist who could be counted on to make the best of every situation and see the best in everyone. 2. Her smile and playful sense of humor could instantly lighten anyone's mood. 3. She had wisdom; she knew what was important in life and held fast to her values. 4. She was one of those rare people whom you could trust with anything. 5. She was a role model of courage, determination, kindness, and generosity. I will be forever indebted to Karen because she left me a priceless gift: memories of her that I will use as a source of strength and inspiration for the rest of my life.
