    Mary always made you feel welcome. She loved her family well, and she loved the Lord with all her heart. She raised three beautiful daughters, and I have been blessed to be close long-time friends with Karen. May each member of her family be comforted by their wonderful memories and by knowing she is resting in the arms of Christ, our Savior.

    Thank you Margie, I am so blessed to have you in my life!
