    Was so sorry to read of the passing of Karen (my cousin). I had not even heard she was ill. Please know that we will miss her, and let me know when the Memorial will be.

    Let’s all of us who knew her give the high praise she “worked for”, earned and deserves.

    Motherhood was never “work” for Karen: It was her reason for being. I hope all of you know that as a fact by the three sons she raised. Each are completely different men yet each are completely necessary to advance the world.

    Never having had a mother – as opposed to a biological agent – Karen tried to fill that roll.

    We settled on: She was the “fry cook” and I was the “baker”. Two different worlds, I suppose, but not so much. Some of my favorites meals are recipes she taught me.

    It was dance, though, where we came together.

    I will never see dance the same way again because of her, nor will ever see it without remembering her.

    In the best of all possible ways, she has left her remarkability on all that had the privilege of knowing her.
