The very first time I met Miss Karen I knew she was a special lady...she touched my heart with how caring and good she was to the people she worked for, always doing extra. My condolences to her family (and her pups). She will be dearly missed.💕

My heart breaks for you guys. I know how much Gram meant to all of you. I appreciate that everyone's been saying "Rest in Life," because boy, was she full of it.

In all these years, I had never known her name was Karen. I've only ever heard her called Gram. She was always at the softball games or band performances, and everyone knew that was Dominique's Grandma.

One thing that's been sticking with me, perhaps most of all, is how warm and big her heart always was. If you were friends of her kids, that meant you were welcomed as part of the tribe as one of her own. She loved, nurtured, and protected all who were dear to her.

I'll always remember her great, big smile, her spunkiness, and what a hoot she was to be around.

Rest in Life, Gram. You are so beloved and you will be sorely missed.
