    I knew Karen from Oriental Trading. She was super friendly and always spoke when she saw me out eating or shopping. It hasn't been that ago since I saw her in the Wal-Mart parking lot. I was cold out so we didn't talk very long. I wish now we had gone somewhere for coffee and had a long visit.

    I am unable to attend the services due to taking care of the Cedar Bluffs Senior Center, but be assured that my thoughts and prayers are with you all!!
