Karen and Rick at their daughter's wedding.
My wonderful friend, Karen, has passed away peacefully. I can't believe that I will never hear her voice again. I was so incredibly lucky that I knew her.
Karen never judged me; she knew the best and the worst of me and she still loved me. I never had to pretend anything with her, or be anything but myself. Karen always understood. We were far apart in distance but never in spirit.
She was one of the best people I ever knew. I can't believe she has gone. I have to ask why? Why did she have to suffer so much, why did she have to die?
