Karen will be missed by more people than she could ever have realized. Her life was open to so many who came to know her and to love her. She held the heart and minds of many people in many different places in her life.She graciously share her ups and downs. Her tears and laughter. Most of all her intellect and wit. Karen will be missed~~We love you Karen, You will never be forgotten jo perry

Just unbelievable - Karen's mother died as well on September 16th.  Karen did get to see her before she passed.  Krysta and Zach have a lot on their plate, and need all our prayers and healing thoughts.  They sound good, and are taking control of things well.  Still haven't heard when Karen's memorial will be held, but will know tomorrow.

I am... stunned. I talked with Karen shortly before her husband's passing, knew both her husband and mother were critical... but this just leaves me speechless. This world has lost an incredible, multi-talented, remarkable woman. She touched so many of us in so many ways.

I still don't have information regarding Serenity (Karen) for everyone, but will let you know the second I do.

Sometimes we wonder why something like this happens. She was so strong for so long. There are no words to express how I feel.

Karen was an amazing writer - a very funny lady and a true friend.

There are just no words...only tears...

My heart goes out to Zack and Krista - losing both parents so close together -

Nobody can do things like this better than you Ms Nan. It's not an easy task but then again you and your kindness and heart it's probably easier for you than most. So glad to see you're still here and in charge and would guess your eraser hasn't been used since I left.

I'm stunned. I got a moment to drop in and see the news about Karen. Just bummed out right now.

Seems like many of these beloved poets were way too young to leave us.

Karen would have wanted us to remember her with laughs and smiles.  I'm just so not there yet.  She was the most beautiful soul.

OMG, just came in and was thrilled to see that Nan added Mommy Muys to the Remember page (thank you Nan). Then I noticed that 1slicklady was there too, which was rather a shocking discovery, because she wasn't that old yet. Then I read the comments and got another shock to read that Karen has passed away too. Darn, too many good people just die too soon. I'm keeping all families in my thoughts.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Karen had a way about her that she could teach, humor, and encourage.  Her depth and expression, to be admired.  

What a lady!  She is remembered.

A memorial has been planned for Karen Blaise (Serenity) on All Saint's Day, November lst, 2013 at the Voodoo Temple  in New Orleans.  I know we will all miss her and I sure hope she is raising a little ruckus in heaven!  The link to the announcement is below for those of you able to attend.

Hello all,

I've finally posted memoriams for Karen and for Huan Yi.  I couldn't find a whole lot of information on John.  He was a pretty private sort.  If anyone has anything I should add, please let me know.

I did not know that John had passed as well. Such a difficult year for so many.

Nan, thank you for the beautiful work you do on the Memory Page. Bless you.

Nan, perhaps you can update the page before Ken's memorial service [4-11-15] that we might give the family the link to share with others.
