Karen was a great friend, an awesome gymnast & coach, and a hard worker with a passion for art. Her “Artistic Gymnastics” embodied all that she valued – love of her sport, her gymnasts and a sense of family beyond her own family. We may have lost her physically, but her spirit lives on in her family, friends and hundreds of gymnasts! Her strong mind and body sustained her longer than most with CJD – it was a long 2 years. We miss you Karen! Love, Dawn & T.
