Karen was a dear friend to me, and i am proud to have known her. She impacted my life in ways she could never know, broadening my perspective and offering affection when i was far from home and family. She was a remarkably intelligent woman, not to mention excellent competition when we watched Jeopardy together. Even after i moved home we spoke almost daily, each of us knowing our time was limited but being grateful for the time that we did have. I loved her like family and will always carry jer in my heart.
