Mom,
You have been the Mother I never had for the last 10+ years, so it is with a heavy ❤ that I write this now.
Thank you for all your love, caring and acceptance into your family and your life. Thanks for taking care of me when I was I'll and loving me as your daughter in law.
I know you were worried about Isaac, Joel, and Myron if this day came, but I promise you I will do my best to provide all I can and help them through this time of sorrow. I am not going anywhere and I will do my best to lessen your worries.
And to my loving and heartbroken husband Isaac, I will never give up or walk away, together with JOEL and Myron, we will make it and make Mom proud.
I love you Mom!

Karen's Family,
I pray for healing in your hearts. Karen was always kind and loving, giving something to my mom every time they seen each other. Always with open arms when I would see her. I will miss her. Now, she is with my mom, Johnny, my brother Lawrence, Uncle David, Grama Lita .. her own mom and dad .. I love you all and I am still here as well … I know this doesn't make it better, only time can do that (kind of).
I will always remember her smile, her laugh - forever hugs to you all...
Love always,
Michelle and Family
