    Joe, Matt, Jennifer and family,

    I got to know Karen years ago when we were both room moms for Matt and Beau’s class – I don’t remember the teacher or the grade. She was such a warm, loving person. I was inspired by the way she lived her life and coped with her illness. A great mom, wife, and grandma; I am so very sorry for the loss you are suffering.

    With sympathy,

    Melinda Henson
