Dick, Heather, Bryan and Crystal - Our hearts ache with sadness and our thoughts are with you all. She was a very neat lady and a joy to talk with. She always greeted us as you all have with open arms and hearts (family) that has always meant so much to us. Her smile and laugh is the first thing I see and hear when I think of her, she will be missed - RIP Karen.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Aunt Karen was a joy to be around with a great sense of humor. She reminded me of my Grandma Dorothy. I remember many Thanksgivings at the Maiman house like it was yesterday. Bryan and Heather, the grieving process is difficult, but I know you will remember all the good times and find comfort that your Mom is with family in Heaven.

My deepest sympathy to the family. Karen and I had great times at work and our Christmas parties. Her joy for life was outmatched by no one.

Uncle Dick, Bryan, Heather, and family: Our family trips back home to Chicago at Christmas and throughout the years hold precious memories for me as a child. This family laughed so hard and enjoyed each other so much. Aunt Karen is a big part of those memories. I trust you are finding rest knowing she is celebrating Jesus in heaven along with family. We will remember you this week as you prepare to celebrate her life and in the weeks ahead.
