    Karen and I met 36 years ago when my family moved in next door to her’s. From that point on, Karen and I became the best of friends. Together we went through the good and the bad times, our first rock concerts, our first loves and all the other life experiences that 2 teenagers could ever go through. As we grew older, we moved away from each other but still kept in touch. It had been a long time since we talked again with all our life changes, eventually we lost all communication. My heart is broken to hear that Karen was sick and that I couldn’t be there for her. I know Karen is resting now and I am sending all my love and prayers to Mr and Mrs Rogers, Faith, Steve and Karen’s children. Rest in Peace my dear friend.
