Dear Ron and family. We were shocked and saddened to hear that Karen had passed away. We were fortunate to meet Karen at the Meridian Credit Union. Karen was professional, friendly and great to deal with. In our first meeting with Karen we realized she was your wife, so conversations quickly turned to the great times and experiences we all had Saturday nights at Merrittville Speedway, and the yearly trips to Super Dirt week in Syracuse. It felt good to walk down memory lane with Karen. Please know we have been thinking about you and your family since we heard this very sad news. May happy memories of Karen warm your heart(s), and all your caring friends surround you with comfort. Karen will be missed by all who knew her. With Deepest Sympathy and in friendship. Rorry and Irene Bradnam

I was so sad to hear of Karen's passing. We were friends and colleagues for more than 40 years and I will miss her kindness and generosity of spirit. All of us are so much poorer for Karen's death. My deepest sympathy to Ron and family.
