  1. We are deeply saddened by Karen’s passing.
    Karen was so pleasant to be with and we enjoyed being around her. She will surely be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Karen’s loved ones.

  2. Karen was a good friend as well as a long-time assistant and co-worker. I am sorry that we lost her at such a young age. I am very sad not to attend the service, but my academic schedule precludes it. I will be with you there in spirit. May God bless her spirit — and the lives of those she left behind.

  3. To Karen’s Family:
    It’s times like these that we all lack the wisdom to comfort a person; however, I hope there is comfort in knowing we care about you. I knew Karen for such a short while, she was a very special “Lady” to me, and she helped me immensely during a difficult time in my life. I will miss her forever! It is a terrible void you have been asked to walk through but fill your hearts with wonderful memories of her. May God bless you and my prayers are with you.

    A friend of Karen’s.

  4. So very sorry to learn of Karen’s death. I worked with Karen years ago, but I’ve always remembered her. She was such a kind and gentle person. My condolences to her family.

  5. I’m so sorry about Karen’s passing.. She will always be remembered as Andrew’s favorite “mom”. She took such good care of Jess and Andrew. Our thoughts and prayers for Karen and the family from all of the Kippur family.

  6. Jesse,
    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I don’t know if you remember me, I did the pet care for Rocky. I miss him, too. My prayers are with you.

  7. To all of Karen’s loved ones. I am very sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Karen was a very lovely person.
