Hey Karen, Pattie and I were just thinking the other night about the little gestures you used to do, like that wicked little laugh you would give after saying something smart, "Heh, Heh, Heh" So funny! Miss it, and you!

Karen, you would have been 53 today, and yes, still younger than me and now you are eternally younger and will never look older. Wish you were here though, celebrating and eating Pattie's Chicken Quesadillas and blowing out your candles with mom and all of us! And watching your fav movie "Paul". Miss u and love u lots!

Thinking of you Karen! Thanksgiving and Christmas 2015 have come and gone. You have been with US in heart throughout the holidays.and always will be. Thinking of your warm smile and fun personality. Last time I saw you your favorite dessert was blueberry and strawberry blinz. I made this dessert for the first time when your brother, my dear Curtis, your "bubba" asked me to make it for you....and of course because we love you! Here it is 2016. Can't believe it! xxoo

My Dearest Karen, you left this world 2 years ago, you left a large hole in the hearts and minds of us left behind. I miss you so much. Today is Marissa's 4th birthday we will celebrate her birth by sitting by the creek thinking of you while she enjoys a "frost paw" treat that you loved to give to the kids. I miss you baby

Karen, You are truly missed and loved forever!!

Karen Cuz. It has been 2 years since you've been with the Lord. I miss you even more, if that's possible. But I know everything is fine with you. How could it not be, being with our Lord Jesus? One day I will be with you, and we can catch up, and do all the silly things we used to do. Just didn't get to spend that much time with you. But I cherish the times we did spend together
Posted by Connie Berchem on 22nd May 2015
My Karen, today is our 5th anniversary, Marissa and me sat by the creek today thinking of you. We miss and love you Connie

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY. I had to leave a message to you under Genes name. 52 years ago you were just a few minutes old. I miss you so very much honey and it isn't getting any easier. You always had a beautiful smile and sense of humor that is missed greatly. I always compose what I want to tell you but just cant find the words when I try. Callie is gone now. I want to believe she is with you and the two of you are going back and forth about the blue rocker. KCee and CurlySue keep me busy and Curly misses you too. So much I want to say but just cant remember it all or have space. The tears are falling and my heart hurts so much. So Happy Birthday Honey and know I LOVE YOU INFINITIES EVER AND MORE. (I hear your DITTO.) LOVE.

My love, I'm so sorry, I had to put Kenzie and Sadie down this week. The girls have been unable to go up or down the stairs since last January. We've been living downstairs to make it easir for them. I've been having to lift Kenzie up to her feet for over 4 months and poor Sadie had lost her ability to control her colon. It was one of the hardest descisions I've ever had to make. They went together peacefully, I felt as though Iost another piece of you my love and I've been balling my eyes out. Our lil Peewee "Marissa" awkes everyday and does her eye rubs. I think she's saying her prayers to you. It's Jake, Marissa and me now, but we love and miss you so much.

It's almost impossible to believe it has been a year since we lost you. Heck, it's almost impossible to believe you're gone at all. I took for granted you'd be around forever! I remember working for my all-time favorite boss at that crazy little station in Ft. Myers, and seeing Toby Keith in Naples when most people had never heard of Toby Keith! Most of all I remember your grin and your sunshine personality. And I'm so happy to be able to say you were my friend. Miss you, Karen. Love you.

Hemingway said," It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end" Your journey left alot of people who dearly loved you and miss you terribly, and that is a journey that matters
Posted by Curtis Jankovitz on 11th June 2014
Well, It's been a year now, in a way it seems like yesterday as I still can't believe you are not here with us, but when I think about calling you and talking like we always did, it seems like an eternity. Love you and miss you more than words can say.
Posted by Connie Berchem on 11th June 2014
My darling Karen, you left us much too soon a year ago, your with me always, I love you and miss you so much. Kenzie, Sadie, Jake and Marissa miss you I know, we all love you.

Karen, we all missed your calls during Christmas and New Years, it wasn't the same without hearing your voice :-( It was so nice when you and Connie were living down here briefly and we were able to have on rare occasion, Christmas with the family. I remember you and I putting up mom's lights on the outside and you kept getting shocked, and the faces you made were priceless. Love you

Karen, We missed you at Thanksgiving, the first real holiday without seeing or hearing your voice and wishing you a happy one.Last year we had an early one before you went home. The year went too fast.Some day we will all spend it together again.
Posted by Curtis Jankovitz on 12th October 2013
You have been gone 4 months as of yesterday, sometimes it seems longer and sometimes it feels like yesterday. It was also the anniversary of Grandma King's passing. I hope you both are together, happy and looking down on us, filling our hearts with peace. Love u both!

Yesterday as I was starting your car to let it run a minute, I never thought to check your cd player so I hit eject and the cd that came out was the Uncle Kracker I made for you and the last song you listened to was so appropiate and ironic, it was " Smile " Love ya!
Posted by Patricia Vail on 2nd September 2013
Hi Karen - Wednesday, August 21, 2013 your mom and I attended a mass in your honor at Saint Columkille Church. The mass was beautiful! It seemed as if you were sitting right in the middle of us. After church we had breakfast at the Gulf Shore Grill. Very peaceful looking out on the gulf. Love ya and miss ya Karen! Pattie
Posted by Curtis Jankovitz on 28th August 2013
It has been 11 weeks since we lost you yet it still feels like it was yesterday. Still seems as if you must still be here. By now if I hadn't heard from you, I would be calling you up to get all the news, and you always had news. You would answer the phone with " Hey Bubba, what's up? " I just wanted to let you know you are loved and not forgotten. Love you Sissy!
Posted by Connie Berchem on 19th July 2013
My Karen, my love, I'm here in MN and I feel you are with me as I make this trip for Kristen's wedding. I gave her the gift you bought for her. You are missed by all. I love you so much, please keep an eye on me as I continue our journey alone. Please give me the strength to carry on.

What are memories?To me they're more than thoughts sparked by something I see or hear.To me they are moments in time that we carry with us through life.They become a part of us and all combined make us who we are.So when I miss you, I know I have those moments in time with you,our memories, so you're never really gone. That makes me smile and I know you're smiling too. Much love my friend

Karen you will always be in my thoughts as one of the most Genuine generous and gracious people I have ever known. I remember digging post holes to build a strong fence and you were right here. It will stand as you will always in my heart. You were a great boss a great friend and someone who had always a true sole. You will be missed by many who you have touched.
Posted by Vickie Olah on 4th July 2013
Words cannot express the feelings i feel KJ!! Time has come and gone but the type of person you were will never change. You were not only giving but compassionate beyond ones comprehension. Words cannot express the the lack of feelings left behind. I see different!!!! Noone will ever be as strong or as determined as you were in my mind Vickie
