My prayers go out to all the family and close friends of this dear lady. I didnt know her personally...but felt like I did from online gaming that she loved. She will be greatly missed...but God has another Angel now.

Dear Karen, little Ricky and all, so very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was my Mom's very best friend and was a friend to all of us kids growing up, more like an extended family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and for you now.
