But going over the years we have laughed a lot .Had our momentsโ€‹ lol and also at Haley's dancing we have been caught by sandy giggling at the toddler who unlike Haley who have entertained us . By the way, she started it lol Mike and Karen have entertained us at family gatherings with fantastic food and playing that dice game with lots of laughter doing it we will miss you Karen more than you know.

Karin, you are a very special person who had lots to give. I will always remember the good times we had travelling with the band and doing gigs. You will be sorely missed.
