After overcoming many personal tragedies and health issues, Karen was at peace and content the past year. She had dedicated her life to the Lord as a young person and in recent months had rededicated her life to Christ. She was kind and loving, especially to her precious pets. She treated her dogs as her little babies and they were always at her side. She and Lou had enjoyed spending time together shopping and running errands. Please especially keep Lou in your prayers as she will miss those frequent visits with Karen.
