Karren's last words, "Just remember none of this is worth stressing over. I could care less if I have an obituary, I don't want a funeral, just cremate me. Always remember the great memories, as you know I will. Let me go to my next chapter and see my loved ones that have passed and I will get things ready for all of you. My life was good, I have laughed so hard I peed my pants, and the love I have shared with all of you will never die.

Her son remembers her by saying, “I can say a lot about mother, but to make things short and simple, mother was to me a super mother. How she managed to do everything and get everything done, especially us 3 kids is beyond me. So I am truly grateful for having her as my mother and she will be missed a lot. Until we meet again.”

And her daughter remembers her by saying, “My mom was a strong woman and I looked up to her a lot in different ways. I miss her so much already, she has definitely left a void in our hearts.”

We want to send a speical thanks to all the caregivers that showed such love and compassion and kindness to Karren at the Willow Springs Care Center in Tooele, Utah.
