Our sympathy to Karan and her whole family. My your mom rest gently and may you all receive peace. Will always remember the good times at your house, Karan, when we were in high school. Your mom was a sweet and funny lady.

Ann, Kris & Karan, There are no words. I am so sorry for your loss. Your mum was super to me all the time. Loved hanging at the house playing LIFE and making homemade icing. Also loved walking the path to your house with the mouse house in the tree. I'm praying for each of you! Peace be with you! Memories will be yours forever!
