    I just now saw this memorial slideshow. Wow. I remember many of those years. Although I haven’t lived in Frankfort for many years, I have thought of Karen quite often, having known her all of my life. Although I knew of her illness, I was sorry to learn of her passing. Blessings on your family today, Larry and Brian & family.
