We will miss you baby sister! You had a big heart and you were so smart putting yourself through college and working at the same time. You were a wonderful, caring nurse and took pride in your patients. Anytime we had a medical question, you knew the answer. There was never a dull moment when you were around..you always had us laughing..we have lots of great memories with you...remembering the times you always took the girls fishing, going jeeping, hunting, camping, dancing outside with grandpa Hicks, teaching my kids your artistic abilities, there are so many memories! Please look down on your beautiful Kacey as she is so smart and has you to thank for that as you were a great mom. Fly high baby girl as we will be together again some day! We love you!

Karen was a beautiful person and the very best of friends. Her warm smile and big heart endeared her to many. That great sense of humor could brighten any day and leave you laughing when you most needed it. Karen cared for many people, if you needed her she was there no matter what. Our lives are better for having known her as she gave that unconditional love that we were all looking for. When we recount the life and times of Karen, we will smile because she was one of a kind, a gift to us all from God above! Love you forever girlfriend, Darlene
