I am so sorry for the loss of Karen. I grew up on Pavilion Lane and remain to this day good friends with Sam Fishman who lived next door. I remember many a summer night playing with Karen and Sam in the backyard and just being kids. Mr. and Mrs. Makowsky, my condolences and prayers to both of you.

I heard you passed and went to Heaven my friend. I know I haven’t seen you in years but I am sure you are the same sweet girl. We had so many fun times together in Highschool. Your family always took me in. I will never forget myrtle or our times together. We grew up together. You were my best friend. You are loved and your family is going to miss you so much. My heart breaks for them. But god has called for you. You have a job to do in Heaven. Watch over your kids and grandkids and family. Rest In Peace my friend. ❤️
