    Always a beautiful smile, and a loving kind heart for others.

    So sorry to hear this. I remember sitting on the Webster House porch in Ft Davis, Texas and admiring her prism pencil drawings. She told me to quit being envious of what she could do and be appreciative of my God given talent of making cards. I had never thought of it as a talent and to be appreciative. She will be missed.

    Karen was always so kind to all of the younger cousins while we were going up. I remember how I couldn’t wait for the holidays at Grandma and Grandpa Lechners. There are so many memories of all of us playing outside together.
