We have many memories of good times spent with Karen and your family with car club activities, and other occasions. We drove through Europe with Dick and Karen amoung other trips we took together. In the past years we remained in touch through facebook. Ron and I always kept feelings of Christian love for Karen and are very sorry for your loss. She was always a Christian testimony to me, and is remembered fondly.
