Bill and family, We all share in your grief, sorrow and pain. May the Lord bless you. Neil Hupfauer, July 30, 2021 Monday evening, TNG met at Mesa to remember our Dear Friend, Karen. We went around the table remembering an adjective that we remembered about Karen. After going around some 5-6 times we ended saying how much we knew she loved each of us. We loved Karen and wish each of you Every Blessing from our Lord Jesus.

Olson Lynda, July 22, 2021 Dear Bill and Melanie, My heart goes out to you with the passing of Karen. How fortunate you were to have a very long marriage of 64 years! I have wonderful memories of the Hight family that I will always cherish. I am especially thankful to Karen who was instrumental in my acceptance of Christ, and all the Bible studies I attended with her. I will always remember Karen's strong faith, and her unconditional love for her family. Blessings to you. Love, Linda
Linda Matthews, July 21, 2021 I knew Mrs. Hight most of my life. I was told I could call her Karen, but to me she was Mrs. Hight. I have so many fond memories of her and her family! I will never forget the time we all went to Cape Cod. It was my first and last time to ever sail in a boat. I remember as a teenager going to NorthPark Mall and eating crepes with her at The Magic Pan. Those are just a couple of my memories. I pray for comfort for Bill, Melanie and her family. I know she will be very missed! I send my prayers, comfort and love to you all. With much love and respect,
