I have known Karen first as a friend then as a sister in-law. I remember when Chris told me he was getting married , God how so long ago .They stayed together all these years through the good times and stressful times . Karen was always so calm, must of been her nursing training but also so kind. So many memories.To Chris, Justin, Shauna, Jackie , Jordan and all your beautiful grandchildren I send my love to all of you and my deepest condolences, Sharon
