    I am deeply saddened by the loss of Karen. She was a joy for me to work with for more than thirty years. No one has ever laughed louder at my jokes than Karen. No one has ever treated me with more respect and cooperation. I will surely miss her. May she rest in peace knowing that she had a blessed life.
