Nanny, it's like I'm 6 years old again and you got married to Ricky. I cried and cried thinking you were gone forever but now I know ur gone forever and I can't stop crying one again. I am sorry I let us grow apart maybe if I had tried harder I love you

I am so sorry to hear about Karen. I have so many great memories from growing up with Karen. I know she fought so many demons throughout her life, but I rejoice she is now enjoying peace with our wonderful Lord. I am sending prayers of comfort for the family.
