so sorry for your loss.  I believe that Karen went to school with me, at central falls high school. we were friends and love the beatles.  I was looking for her online for awhile and was never able to find her. knowing she live in pawtucket not far away, sadden me that i never got to connect back with her. May God hold her in his arms and bring her peace. My prayers are with you and your family. God Bless

Cousin George-Shocked to read about Karen's. passing. I talked to her last Christmas and she never let on that she was not feeling well.. I called my sister in Florida - the Bennett/Patterson  is quietly diminishing.(Only Dexter, Dan, Loree and me left-Aunt Grace only parent  remaining!)  God bless you, George and you will always be in our prayers.
Karen was such a wonderful person and I know you loved her dearly.
