Auntie Karen, We’ll we did it.. Yesterday we celebrated your life. You had a beautiful turnout. Family and friends came together to share stories and their love for you. You must have been so proud of that turn out. Losing you has left such a big hole in the hearts of many of us. I miss you so much Auntie Karen.

Oh sister how I miss you. You were ALWAYS there for me. When mom decided it was better to go to the Bahamas then to be a mom, you were there. You were there when I had Gina, and got the pleasure of telling her father her name. Because of you, I met Grace and Tom and the rest of the Duffs. I’ve lost some very important people in my life but I feel like I’ve lost a very big part of my heart. Its still so hard to believe we will never see you sitting at your kitchen table or hear your oxygen machine again. The night I flipped that switch off will remain with me forever 🥲 Like Chris said, the song We Are Family will never ever be danced to again until I GOT ALL MY SISTERS WITH ME!!!!!! I love you my sisterXOXOXOXO

Karen You left us too soon. We wanted more time with you. You will be forever in our hearts. The only thing that helps is knowing that you are now pain-free. Spread your wings and soar above us and dance with the ones that left before you. We love you and we miss you. Until we meet again…..
