      So thankful Karen is no longer in pain and discomfort where she can rest in piece. She was a good friend, keeping in touch with me long distance when I didn’t feel good, cheering me up by sharing good time memories. What a wonderful role she performed taking care of her brother when he was alone and ill and needed assistance, living in downtown Chicago. She also gave loving care to both her parents individually when they were unable to take care of themselves. I always enjoyed the trips that Karen, Marie and I were able to go on, so much laughter. I look back now and wish there could have been more. As more miles came between us it got harder to accommodate personal obligations, careers, family events, scheduling, health restrictions, etc. Thank goodness for cell phones.

    Karen was my first instructor at Loyola back in 1972. She was a wonderful teacher and a pleasure to know. My sincere condolences.

    Rest In Peace Aunt Karen! It was such a pleasure to get to know you over the years and to hear those fun stories of you and Marie growing up together!
    I will always remember and cherish those great HUGS of yours!
