    Big sister has joined mom & dad in Heaven. She was a great human being showing us all how to be kind, compassionate, loving, putting everyone else before herself. She cared so lovingly for our mother, father, when they were alive & for our older brother Steven up until the day our Lord called her home. We are all saddened that she has left us here on earth but find great comfort that she knew in her heart she was going to Heaven. She told us so.
    I could write a book on our big sister but not now.
    Karen, I will see you in Heaven. Thank you for being the best sister ever.
