To Jim and your precious family, we enfold you in our hearts and uplift you with our prayers. Karen was a cherished friend during our time in Bay Village and for all the years thereafter. Her caring heart, glowing smile and gentle wisdom were gifts she shared with all who knew her. The inner glow, God's enduring gift, was a blessing and beacon for all of us even throughout her illness. Karen will always remain in our memories as our beloved friend and our spiritual guide. May the grace of God's healing love surround Karen's family, friends, caretakers, and all who knew her and were transformed by her gracious being. Love, Darlene and John Prestbo

Karen was indeed a "shining light". She and I were in a Koinonia group together and our spiritual commitment grew as we met. Over the years, we stayed in touch (thanks to Jim's wonderful Christmas letters). Her light will always be shining in the hearts of the many she touched.

I am so sorry you have lost Karen yet again after your years of struggling to hold on to the wonderful wife and mother she was. Let the recent past be replaced by memories of the woman you married and called the love of your life. One day you will be together again. Love, Dianne Magnani

Jim, your care for her was exemplary to all of us. It was said "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13,
