    I just received word that Karen's mom who has been in failing health for some time passed away yesterday.

    Karen has been not only been helping her Mom for a very long time, but since the diagnosis has traveled from her home in Michigan to her mother's home in Ohio every day!!! She has been a caring, considerate, loving daughter...and I hope she appreciates how much she has done, and that the realization gives her some peace.

    Please remember her and her mom in your thoughts and prayers.

    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly!  
    Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

    I am so sorry to hear about Karen's mom. I had the pleasure to meet with Karen and walk the Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk in Toledo with her. You are right, Rachael, she was a wonderful daughter to her mom. Karen, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sarah
