She was a shining light in my world and inspiration in my life to come. With my life in the military I lost contact with Karen but I never for got her or the family. She treated me like a son. I loved her like a son, with all my heart.

I will miss your tinkling laugh Mom, you were truly a gift to me for the short time I was honored to know you. You were a great mommy as reflected in how wonderful your four children are. I will cherish you forever as I hold Shar close, and love her eternally like I promised you.

It has been a long and difficult journey the last 2 years. It is so ironic that a heart so full of life and love ultimately let her down! There will never be a mother that loved her children more. I am so grateful to have been her child! I love you mom and will miss you all the rest of my days!!
