Dean and family,
What can I say that hasn't already been said? I came to know Karen through PPP and my son's speech class(as well as a patient for years) and she just lit up the room with her enthusiasm and good nature. If life is to be lived, then she was a shining example of how to do it. I always found her to be looking for that "one more thing" that needed to be done. She leaves behind a void that would be hard for most of us to fill. But, the show must go on and she has left us to do it. Thanks, Karen for the gift of your guidance and friendship. "Break a leg", my friend!
