My thoughts and prayers are with you Samantha, Greg and your family. I worked with Karla at AT&T for many years. First in the Consumer IT LST and then the Mobility & Home Solutions LST. We worked closely on financial support tickets for our users. She shared her financial expertise. I appreciated getting to know her and learn from her. I know she was so proud of Samantha. She’s a special person and always will be. She will be missed.

My heart breaks and am deeply saddened hearing the news about Karla. I have worked with Karla for 8+ years at AT&T and recall talking with her extensively while she was being honored for bringing one of her many bright ideas to The Innovation Pipeline (TIP) program. Karla was a caring person with an intense desire to make life better for others. She spoke fondly about her daughter, Samatha, as being the light of her life and very much looked forward to spending time with her! I will pray God grants you strength and you will find peace to overcome the pain and sorrow.

Sam and Greg, Karla was the bright light every day at the barn (an AWESOME horse mom who taught us the reins of riding) and a mom whose entire world evolved around you both. You were her life. May God hold you both in His hands and lead you through this time of pain and suffering. Words cannot express our sympathies but know we are praying for all three of you.

To Karla's family and friends - my heart and prayers go out to you. I worked with Karla at AT&T in the past, and she was absolutely brilliant. One of her quotes, which was spot on in the workplace and in many life situations, was "Just do it." Not in an authoritarian sense, but with the wise attitude of not letting hurdles or challenges get in the way. She ADORED and was so proud of her daughter Samantha. Samantha is my son's age. I can't imagine Samantha's pain, but know losing a mother is beyond life-changing. Samantha, please know your mother will ALWAYS be with you. Words can't adequately express my sorrow for your loss. <3 Wishing you peace, strength, and healing.
