Dear Kim & Family,

My sincere condolences to you and your entire family. My Dad & I saw your Mom last winter volunteering at Simcoe Hospital, she looked wonderful and was talking about how proud she was of her kids and at that time she told us you had been asked to run for office Kim - she was bursting with pride. She was a wonderful woman and very loved. My thoughts are with you during this sad time. Laurie West

My condolences to Karen's family and friends. I have very fond memories working with Karen at Nelson Steel during the summers between University. She took me under her wing at that place, and was ALWAYS so very kind to me. May her kindness live on in the many people I am certain she inspired. RIP.
