To Karen’s Family, Words cannot express the sorrow I’m sure you’re feeling now nor can I come up with words to make it go away. I worked with Karen at Memorial Hospital for many years and she was great! Always very friendly, always had a smile for her patients! And what a giving person! Rest in Peace Karen! God bless you and keep you .

Dear Klohr Family, Words cannot express how deeply saddened we were to hear of Karen's passing. We remember Karen's beautiful smile, her kindness, and her humor. As trite as it sounds, she truly was beautiful inside and out! We were blessed to know her. May fond memories of Karen bring you comfort and sustain you at this difficult time. With love, Bob and Peggy Maupin
