I had the pleasure of being Karin’s grade 2 teacher in 2011. She was was a kind, gentle, caring little girl. When I think of Karin I have the vision of her big beaming smile and that’s the way I will always remember her. She brought a lot to this world during her short time here. We were all lucky to know her

You are sure going to be missed my young friend. All the wonderful things that were said about you, and all the people whom you touched in your short time here, will forever remember you for what you did, how you played, your sense of humour, your interests, your quirks, your kindness and compassion, and your passion for life. You are an exceptional young lady, and we are going to miss you so much Karin. We were looking forward to hearing about you as a star basketball player, an Olympian even! Well, it's not to say that can't still happen my love...You'll just be playing with the AllStars now. I know we will meet again Karin. Rest easy. You will be forever remembered for your smile and your sunshine eyes by your Uncle Rob and me.

I was so saddened to read the Tri-City newspaper!! My heart is broken. I was one of your preschool teachers. You were such a smart sweet girl. I am one of the lucky ones who got to know you when you were young. I am sending my prayers and love to your mom, dad, Jacob and Justin!!! Thinking of you all in this very hard time. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Karin, I had the pleasure of getting to know you on Team Tropical during your grade 8 year at Citadel. Your energy is infectious and your light still shines bright here. I appreciated the time you took out of your lunch break to help me coach grade 6 basketball (thank goodness for that, as you've seen my dribbling skills...). I am also grateful for the "hello's!" and life updates you'd share when you popped by Citadel in your spare time. You will be forever missed. #2kstrongforever

We were decorating the gym for the grade 5 leaving ceremony at Castle Park (Justin's year). All the kids were there hanging.

I asked Teena if she could give my son Phoenix a lesson on how awesome girls are at basketball - a little one on one action perhaps to drive the point home;)
Although T really wanted to teach that lesson, she decided it might not be the best idea and so she recruited Karin to give the lesson for her.

They played one on one and every minute or so, Teena added more challenges like only two dribbles etc. 
Even though Phoe was taller and older than Karin, she won and she did it with her quiet, graceful, humble self and what I remember the most is that awesome grin of hers - so sweet and kind no matter what the circumstance. 
A true champion thru and thru!

We miss you and think about you every day Karin!
xoxo
