Condolences to Wendyn. And to all of us. I'm feeling very sad this week so I know others are feeling that way too. Losing Karen's voice leaves a real void on this space. While I've always thought the death-with-dignity concept made sense, this is the first time I've grappled with it beyond the abstract. It seems to be a blessing, even as we grieve. Sending healing thoughts to this community.

Expressed perfectly by each of you! Thank you! It is during times such as this that I most feel a very real sense of "family", here. And the loss that I feel, today, is amplified by the memory of the many other good folks that have gone before.

My best to you, Wendyn. I hope you find yourself filled with warmth from the love and good memories that will forever be. May you find peace, reason and purpose... as they wait to greet you with each new day.

My best...

Jim

Laurie, thank you for Karen's... her obituary

I knew who she was for a while... what words to say other than yours and all those
above. Wendyn... peace be with you.

So sad but now free I guess. What a beautiful lady. You too Wendyn.

Condolences to Wendyn and all who knew and loved Karen. May all the good memories, knowledge of how many she comforted in their journeys, and goodness of a life well-lived help to ease the pain of losing her.

Wendyn I am so very sorry for your loss of Karen, She was such a wonderful guiding light here. I am happy she can fly free, but I intensely feel your pain.

Hugs,
