  1. CandleImageStill nearly impossible to believe you’re really gone. Losing you was like losing a sister. I’d say you were my sister from a different mother. We’d complete each other’s sentences, always laughing sometimes until we cried. Working on projects, always going, going, going. Side by side through the easy and the tough times. We tend to take for granted those we care about will always be with us. How are we supposed to survive when suddenly they’re gone? I still haven’t figured that out. I know you’re with our mom’s now. Probably laughing and telling stories, but I still miss you. Will always miss you.

  2. It was a pleasure knowing and working with Karen. We were a good team when we worked together in Headstart. I learned so much from her and have always been appreciative of that. I have many good memories of Karen. I’ll cherish those memories, as I’m sure, all of you will cherish your memories.
    May you all be granted peace and light at this time of loss.

  3. Dear Galvez family, Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Your family is very special to us and your Mom was like another grandmother to our kids. Rest in peace, Karen.

    Rich and Linda Jensen
