Carla, Glenda, Kathy, Leland and your families, my sincere condolences with the passing of Karen. When God made Angels, he made Karen one of the best. When you were her friend, you knew it, because she would keep you fed, give you advice on how to make your life better, and share her love of her family with you. Kathy, Karen thought of you more like a daughter than a sister. She was so proud of your many blessings. Carla and Glenda, I may not have been around much as you got older, but Melvin and Karen have kept me well informed of marriages and grandchildren. You both were their greatest accomplishments and treasures in life. Leland, you gave Ms Karen so much joy and happiness You helped her through some of her toughest days. I am sorry I could not be there for you, but my daughter has cancer and I stay with her. I have asked that God will hold each and everyone of you close to him, give you peace and understanding and most importantly, be your strength during these dark and unbearable days ahead. Thank you for sharing your treasure with all of us during the last forty plus years. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m sending my sincere condolences to the Dunn family and friends. This is one of life’s greatest challenges that we have to face. The Bible offers much comfort for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. John 5:28-29 shows us how there will be a resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death. Revelation 21:4 speaks of a time when death will be no more. If you would like to learn more details about this, please visit for the answer to many of life’s questions.

I will miss Karen so much. She was truly one of those special individuals that had a unique joy about her. Karen and the Dunn family made a significant impact on me during my childhood. My only regret is that I did not have the opportunity to spend more time with Karen and her family when we moved away from Pleasant Hope. I will cherish memories of Karen forever!
