While working together on the yearbook staff, I noticed Karen's handwriting. It was so perfect that it looked like a computer font. She was such a sweetheart.

Karen was such a lovely girl. She had such a kind heart. I also remember her "typewriter" penmanship. I can still picture it. She was a pretty amazing young lady. It's so sad that she was only here a short time, but she sure made a lot of people happy while she was here! Karen, I hope you are taking good care of Lance now. We miss you.

Karen was my next door neighbor when she lived here. I have so many fond memories of her. She was the sweetest person I have ever met and I still think of her from time to time. We had so many special memories together!

My favorite has to be one spring weekend when my folks were out of town. I invited all my girlfriends over to my house and we ended up doing a music video in my driveway to "The Cars the Go Boom" all dressed in my cheerleading outfits. Karen was at Chuck's at the time, but had planned to come over later. Her dad saw us all out in the driveway and called her and said, "You gotta come home and go to Kande's. They're out in the driveway doing cheers!"

Karen and I drove to school every morning before I got my car senior year. Driving with Karen was ALWAYS an experience. I can't count how many times she ran stop signs on the way to school. When we went to Kings Island for grad night our senior year, we got lost on the way home. We had missed the exit for Carrolton/Bedford and ended up driving all the way to Lexington, KY. The day of our graduation, Karen's family hung signs all over our neighborhood for "Karen and Kande's limousine service - One way to Lexington". They were a fun family and we always had such a good time.
