  1. Wayne and I are heartbroken over the loss of Karen. We know how much the 2 of you loved each other, it was so beautiful! Karen was the most beautiful, loving, funny, caring, and strong woman God ever made. Cody, you and your children, their spouses and your grandchildren are in our thoughts and prayers. We wish we could come to the visitation and the funeral however with Covid cases increasing everyday we are trying to stay home and stay safe. We know you will understand. We love Karen and we love you. God be with you and your family!

  2. Cody, I am so sorry for your loss, she was so sweet and funny when she came in to the office. She was always telling Jamie and I about a stray or pup she would bring home for you to treat after you would tell her not too. She was so kind hearted and I can see why you loved her. Prayers for you and your family

  3. We are so sorry to hear of your loss, but heaven’s gain. Karen was a very special lady who be greatly missed by many. Our prayers go out to you and your family during this difficult time.

  4. Cody, I am so sorry to hear about Karen’s passing. I missed her so much after the two of you moved from Teel Road. It just wasn’t the same here. I could always go over and talk to Karen when I need advice and she always, always helped me to understand things better. I’m sorry we never got to visit the two of you in Charleston and I’m very sorry, because of Covid and my own health issues that Mike and I can’t come to say good bye to her. I know you and the kids are going to miss her so much. Its a shame they didn’t have a candle with cats on it.

    Please know that Mike and I are thinking of you at this time and our prayers are with you and the family as you try and adjust to her departure from this earth.

    Mike and Delores Vaughan
