Ron, Sharon and fam, We are sad to hear about the loss of your mom. We didn't know her very well, but seemed like a wonderful person! We understand your loss, its extremely hard losing a parent. Stay strong and always remember happy times with her. Love you guys.... Dana and Larry, January 17, 2020 It was a sad day for many of us upon hearing of Karen’s passing. I worked with her at Target. I enjoyed visiting with her in Targets food court before the store opened. She may have been a New Yorker but she had a heart as big as Texas. RIP Karen.
Barbara Lewis, January 16, 2020 Karen was always ready to give you a hug, even when you did not think you needed one!! She would always say to me "You don't want a hug do you?" I would say no, but I got a big one anyway!!! I will not forget Karen, she is unforgettable!! Prayers to the family.
Beatrice Fehrm Shelton, January 14, 2020 We are so very sorry for the loss of Karen. She was my first friend at Target over 30 years ago. We live in The Colony still because she said it was a great place. She was always smiling and happy. She attended our wedding almost 20 years ago. You could always tell how much she loved and adored her husband, daughter, son and grandchildren. Prayers for her family. Scott & Lisa Keesey, January 9, 2020 I will miss so much Karen's smiling face and welcoming demeanor. So glad that the last time I saw her I got to hug her and tell her I loved her. I'll miss our chats about life and family and her wonderful sense of humor. Sending thoughts of comfort to the family. Melissa Conrad, January 7, 2020 Karen was and always will be a ray of sunshine in my life. Her sweet smile and the joy and love she brought to me and my family will be remembered always. God Bless her and keep her in the loving care of our most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Love to her and her family always and in all ways.
Mary Ellen Beals, January 6, 2020 Mr. Ron, Monika & Ronald, I'm sorry for your loss seems like such an understatement having known your family. Even though it has been years since we have seen her, I feel as though I got to visit with her weekly via FB and I will miss that. Our prayers and hugs go out to you all! We will be with you in spirit to memorialize Mrs. Karen! Rachel Standard Daigle, January 6, 2020 My friendship with Karen lasted from meeting her at our daughter’s pre school class until her passing. She and I had a special friendship - Geographically we were far apart but- we could pick up the phone and talk like we saw each other the day before. I was very lucky to have a friend like Karen - her spirit will always be with me. My sympathies to Ron, Monika and Ronald and her family.

Susan McLeod, January 4, 2020 I was so sorry to hear of Karen's passing. My family lived on the same block in Flushing with Karen's family. She would babysit for us and we loved her. I was always encouraged by the posts she made on Facebook always about her faith in Christ and how much God loves us. Please know I will be praying for you, her family during this difficult and new journey God has put you on. He is faithful, and can be trusted, as I have experienced His love, protection and provision since my husband's home going to Heaven in October of 2018. God bless you!
