Usually, I have no trouble with words but my heart is so full about Karen they aren't coming easily. It was fortune smiling on me that I got to live in the same city with her for most of our adult lives. We shared some great vintage shopping, quirky restaurant meals and love of Akron's parks. She had routes to follow for each season of the year: daffodils at Furnace Run, summer blooms at Stan Hywet, leaf color in the Cuyahoga Valley and winter in the Gorge. She had an amazing eye for good design and an amazing palate for good food. And O, the jewelry!! She was a fabulous personal curator. There were so many joys and challenges and I know she is blessed. I miss her more than I can say.

She was a very talented artist. Wether using jewelers pliers or a cooking whisk, she created beauty. She had a big heart and a beautiful g personality. Her laugh, love and wit will be missed.
