  4. Karen was a such a nice person and she will be missed; my thoughts are with you.

  5. My father Clyde Reed and Gladys were 1st cousins. Karen and I were born just 25 days apart and we and also my husband, Burton Sexton went all the way through high school together at Huntsville. We were always good friends as well as cousins but I only got to see her once after graduation. She was a very kind, gentle, loving person and I am so deeply sorry for this tragedy and the family’s grief and loss. But we thank the Lord that she is now free of pain and safe in His arms forever. Burton and I will be praying for all of you. Rev. 21:4
