Karen had such a sympathetic, caring and compassionate heart to those hurting and going through hard times. Even in the middle of life’s pains and adversity she would always find a way to bring a calm demeanor, sweet spirit and willingness to help people. Karen leaned on Jesus. Karen’s sense of humor was infectious and she had a way of turning everyday things into laughter. She loved Auburn football. Her mother and her sister love Alabama football. Because of Karen, watching this family rivalry was hilarious. Karen’s caring heart and laughter will be greatly missed.
