Karen was known for her musical talent, she played many musical instruments by ear. She also had a beautiful soprano voice which was a pleasure to all who heard her. Karen was an exceptional entrepreneur, having many successful businesses including a bookstore where she won an all-expense-paid trip to London England, a health food store with her sister Laverne Amos, an esthetician skin care business and as a massage therapist, to name a few.

She had a very likeable character, an uncanny ability to teach people about health & natural healing by helping people in a deep and positive way by how she lived day to day. She was a strong believer in our Savior Jesus Christ, in service, hard work and a wonderful knack for solving problems. She could turn the simple things in life into special moments, and she will be greatly missed.

I’m very sorry for your loss. Even though the loss was a few months ago, it still seems new.Words cant describe how you're feeling, nor will they completely take the pain away. Here are some comforting words. No matter what God sees the pain you’re experiencing.

1 Peter 5:7
Throw all your anxiety on [God], because he cares for you.

I am so sorry for your lost, death is something that never feels natural. We have all lost someone and ask God to help easy the pain of the love we feel that has been lost. I hope that your family and friends are able to find comfort in knowing that your love one is resting now, and has the hope of the promised resurrection that is promised to us from the Bible (John 5:28,29) The scripture at Rev. 21:3,4 is so dear to my heart because it shows us that our creator cares that we go through pains and trials, and will put a stop to not just your or my pain, but worldwide. I hope you find comfort from the best source of comfort, Romans 15:4, 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
