Karen and family,
I just read your mom’s wonderful obituary in the Enquirer. What a woman! I knew her involvement was deep in the history of College Hill, but I am still amazed that a person could be so much a part of my community and I didn’t realize it to the extent that I should have. Congratulations on having such a special mother. What a gift she must have been to all of you.
