Christopher, Joseph and Michael…..I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. Please accept my sincere condolences. Karen removed herself from our lives many years ago and I had no idea where she was. I was shocked when I saw her obituary in our local newspaper. I have something that needs to be given to her children. If someone could contact me at I would appreciate it.
