Dearest Kara, you are an angel sister whom I admire. You have made me and my family as part of your family during your Christmas Dinners. You will continue to teach me how to be kind, loving, generous, and wise. I love you and admire you forever.

Kara was more than a sister-in-law. She was a dear friend. I'll never forget all the fun times we had together and especially how she checked on me every week during the pandemic to make sure that I was ok. I'll miss you forever Kara. You were a true angel sent to our family!

Kara was such a sweet, kind, and gentle person. She cared deeply about her patients. She was a loving mother and a staunch advocate for her son, Joseph. She was a loving and devoted daughter. The world has lost a bright light. Please accept my sincerest condolences.
