My wife and i met Karen back in 1997 as we began our careers in the IT field. She was my leader, a mentor, neighbor, and a very dear friend for many years after our work assignment ended in Houston. I will cherish all her teachings, memories and always timely and sound advice. We would like to express our deepest most sincere condolences to her family and to everyone that was touched by her. She was very special to us, and i regret not staying in touch much more frequent over this past few years. Until we meet again my friend. The Macias Family.

I was deeply saddened to learn of Karen’s passing. I attended Northeastern University in Boston with Karen and she was just a joy to be around. She was so down to earth and I was very blessed to have her as a friend. I made several visits to her mom’s home for home cooked meals. I will always remember her as a generous and loving soul. She is now reunited with our friend Cynthia. My deepest condolences to her family, She will be missed but never forgotten.
