My heart is broken. Karen was not only my friend and co-worker over the years, we also shared a special bond having exchanged Valentine Day Cards for 35+ years. We both loved our cats. I will miss Karen forever, the most kind, sweet friend. I am so sorry, Dennis and Family, please know she was loved by many. Bethel Assante Manistee
