2 Condolences for “YOOS Karen”

    I did not know Karen (other than a brief meeting), but she was a friend of my grandmothers (Helen Gunn). Her untimely and tragic passing has weighed heavily on my mind and heart since I heard about it. It sounds as though she was a kind, loving, caring person with an unconditional love for her daughter and family. I cannot imagine how hard this must be for everyone who loved her. I just wanted to express my sympathy and tell you that her life has touched mine deeply. It just goes to show you that her life could leave such a wonderful impression on someone she didnt even know, and with that being said, Rest in peace Karen. The world was lucky to have had you in it.

    I just found out about Karen’s death from a friend this morning and was so shocked and sad to hear of her passing. Bob and I knew Karen ( and Randy) when they first moved to Wainwright in the 1970’s. Bob was best man at their wedding . I visited her a few times in Lethbridge and Fort Macleod, and she often stayed at our place when visiting in Wainwright. She was so dedicated to Dee and I saw this first hand a few times as she took me to the place where Dee lived. We emailed and kept in touch through Christmas cards and phone calls. She will certainly be a special angel in Heaven. She will be missed by her family and friends.
