  1. Karen and I sat next to each other in choir for many years, first at Bethany Reformed and then at Orchard Hill Reformed. She was always willing to laugh and joke and have a good time. She made choir fun. We stayed in touch after I moved back to Iowa, and still we poked fun at each other. I will surely miss my friend.
