My sincerest sympathies to Bruce and all Karen’s family and closest BFFs. Too soon. Too young. Karen, like many others, persevered through illness and disease and she did so with all her inner strength. Bringing awareness to others about the symptoms of ovarian cancer in the hope of saving lives. Heaven gained an angel. Rest in Peace Karen.
