To Karen’s Family,

Susie and I have not known Karen and Bill for a very long time but we shortly realized that she and Bill were a wonderful couple. I especially respected her in the way that she addressed various sicknesses either with her or Bill. She was a Lector with me at Sacred Heart and whenever she needed a sub or I did both of us would not hesitate to help each other. Quite often she and I talked about various issues and the one thing that I admired was her unselfishness and understanding. Susie and I were completely taken back upon seeing that she had passed. Her family can be proud of her and we will forever remember her very fondly.

Rick and Susie Arquette

Very sorry to hear about your loss. May you and your family gain comfort from God’s word at Isaiah 26:19. “Your dead will live. . . the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” A time will soon come when you will be able to see your loved one again right here on earth.

Bill, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Karen will always hold a special place in my heart. She was a great lady. II had her for English last period of the day way back in the 7th grade. She would reserve the last 20 minutes or so each day to read aloud to our class. My favorite book was ‘The Outsiders”. It was like meditation at the end of the day as she asked us to close our eyes and just listen to her voice. Her voice was unique and smooth. Years later, I would listen to her again (this time with eyes open) as she proclaimed the word of God at Church. I truly it when she Lectored and as an old habit, I was sure to play close attention knowing that SOMEDAY there will be a quiz. STAY GOLD Mrs. Kingsborough.
With my deepest sympathy,
Anita Hotz
