KK was my best friend growing up. Knew her from 1st grade on. I'm shocked and sad to hear this news. Just had a delightful voicemail from her at Christmas (2019). Hoping Carol Musselman or any other family member will contact me at 303-981-2923 or text me. Sending prayers and sympathy to everyone.

I grew up across the street from Karen. There were so many things we shared in those first dozen or so years of life. I'll always remember playing in the woods, the Mill Pond, and riding bikes after dinner on the first day after daylight savings. I'll be thinking of you every Spring when it stays light after dinner.

My dearest Karen, I Love You!! I was so blessed to have you as my neighbor. From the first day I moved in you made me feel welcome. We bonded immediately and became fast friends. You brought laughter and joy into my life. I will forever cherish our time together. Rest in peace my beautiful friend.

Our prayers, thoughts and love go to you and your family. I know she will be missed, but Karen is at peace and probably causing a ruckus with your Aunt Sheryl!!! I think I hear her laughing and her bracelets clanking!

We’re so sorry to hear of the passing of my ever smiley cousin Karen. She was so full of laughter and joy. I remember the fun we used to have at family get togethers over the holidays or in the summer when we were kids, and the special cousins’ lunches we shared later in life. She was a sparkly, funny, dear person and I shall miss her very much! She loved you all so much. She’s with Sheryl and her mom and dad catching them up on things and making them laugh. Love to you all.

Working at the preschool together and later at Liberty Mutual. Our Friday night at Finnerty with the Liberty gang. Our numerous trip to Bermuda at DeSilva guest house.The beginning of the bangle bracelets. Your becoming a mother you biggest joy-Your move to Sandwich-We kept in contact over the years my summer visits of days on the beach, dinners and wine.As we grew older our lives paths took a different course- but we stayed in touch. We shared lives ups and downs-rejoiced in happier times of grown children and grandchildren . Over the years we had a lot of laughs good times may you rest in peace- you will always be remembered and in my heart- until we meet again my friend

We have very fond memories of Karen happily hosting family holidays when Elizabeth and Nick were kids. Her house was very festive with lots of laughter and great food! Karen especially loved celebrating her kids birthdays' in a very big way, She was so proud of you, Elizabeth and Nick! I am forever grateful for Karen's kindness and compassion for my parents, especially my mom as they got older. May you rest in peace, Karen

Dear Elizabeth, I was one of your pre-school teachers at TLRSH. And after all these years.... YES ! I still remember you and your mom. She was one of those mothers who always had a smile on her face! She was always eager to donate and volunteer. You and Nicholas were truly blessed to have her as your mom. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Miss Joyce
