I am so sad for your loss. I didn't have a chance to know Kara growing up, but I did get to meet her when my mom and I went to her babyshower in Jacksonville when she was pregnant with Payton. That was awesome and a great memory. What a contagious smile she had. I pray that all of you will have some peace in your wonderful memories of her. With heartfelt love, Margaret

We cannot even imagine your pain Cathy and Mike. You were living in akron when Kara was born you were the first of our friends who had a baby. I do remember your joy with your beautiful daughter. I remember this beautiful daughter with big eyes and dark hair (hope my memory is correct on that) I remember how happy you were. You moved to floridA and did not get to see that beautiful child grow up. But we kept in tough and she grew into a beautiful adult. We can't even comprehend the pain your family must be going through. I do know that Cathy is such a loving dedicated mother she is. Hoping your boys and grandkids can bring you some comfort. Just know we love you and will be keeping all of you in our prayers

What to say to my best friend and husband who lost a daughter, a daughter who lost her mom, brothers who lost their sister…aunts, uncles, other family members…. My heart is aching for you, and all I can do is to pray for you all, reminisce, laugh at the silly stuff, cry over the sad. I know your hearts will always have scars, and I wish I could make them disappear. Others have mentioned her smile, and it sure was a great one—I love how her eyes would crinkle up when she smiled. It was a contagious smile and one which I will forever remember. I love you all. Marilyn
