I am saddened by Karen's passing. We met years ago in Dalhousie. The Inman came to be our Ministers. Karen and I hit it off right away and over the years our friendship has always been special to me. My heart felt sympathy goes out to Karen's family and friends. She will certainly be missed.

I'll never forget your laughter. It brought such a light to those around you. I have so many cherished memories of you. It breaks my heart to hear of your passing 💔. The many adventures we had together that Riley enjoyed them with us. I'll forever hold you in my heart. Give Riley a hug, kiss for me. You were always there for me. Your heart was the purest of all. I miss you dearest Karen xoxo 💗

I have known Karen for many years and spent a lot of time with her when her family lived in Browns Flat. She was always such a positive person and we shared our common experiences of both being preachers daughters. One of my fondest and also humorous memories is when she and I joined a weight loss program where we weighed in every Tuesday night. Immediately following the meeting we headed to the Browns Flat Irving and ate chips and chocolate to reward ourselves for a week of behaving on our diets. We giggled like school girls. Although we lost touch over the years we reconnected on Facebook a few years ago. She was a good friend and will be missed by her friends and family.

Mom will be greatly missed. She was a friend, mother, sister, daughter, grandmother who went over and beyond to bring laughter and happiness to whom she was around. I have so many awesome memories of her and the grandkids that it would take months or even years to write. The kids say they miss you and love you and want to see you, I also say the same. We miss our phone calls and adventures. Until I see you again ..... hugs mom (nanny) xoxo
