Thread: Karen

  1. #1

    Karen

    I believe that our mayor, Karen, should have her own thread for the time being. I should think that it would be easier for her to receive support from people who do not send her private messages. I think it should be for Karen and supporting her in the days and months to come. After all she has done for all of us Pet Talk folks, I believe the least we could do is be sensitive towards her at this time and in the months, and holidays and years to come. That is what I think . Let's do it.

    Thank you, mon - I think this is a terrific idea !!

    I asked LH for permission to share this. In Paul's obituary it says that donations may be made in Paul's memory to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Here's a link http://bestfriends.org/ There is also a place to click for making a memorial donation.

    Also, here is the address: 5001 Angel Canyon Rd, Kanab, UT 84741

    Karen and family, I just want you to know I am thinking of you again today, saying a prayer and sending virtual ((((HUGS))).

    I see Karen lost someone, who was Paul?

    What a thoughtful idea, Mon

    My heart has been so heavy since I heard the sad, sad news. I can't begin to comprehend the depth of your loss, Karen, and so it's nice to have a place to come to, to post a short note to let you know just how much we care. I've been here for 15 years, and can't count the number of times you have been there for us, when one of the Pet Talk family has faced tragedy, loss...when we have lost one of our very own. So, I just wanted to let you know that you're in my thoughts and prayers, constantly, and hoping that the love of family and friends is bringing you comfort.
    We love you, Karen

    Thank you Sandra for expressing so eloquently the feelings we all share.

    Karen, I am so sorry for your loss and sincerely hope this wonderful community will help you in many ways to heal. Paul was such a dear man - we were all fortunate to have him in our lives and will ever cherish all he gave to us. I cannot imagine the heartbreak you are experiencing and will keep you and your family in my thoughts. Please take care and reach out to those who care so very much about you. Lots of love, Betty

    Thank you! Yesterday when I was leaving the house to go to choir, I startled our wild bunny from the front of the building. I would normally tell Paul, so am sharing with you!

    We, as a Pet Talk family, are experiencing a tremendous loss and heartache prevails, but I cannot begin to comprehend the pain that hovers over Karen and her family. Paul and Karen touched cyberspace and brought the world together in a way few people can understand and I will be happy to honour Paul with a donation to Best Friends. Karen, please accept my heartfelt condolences and prayers. Take comfort in knowing that your friends are here for you. We will listen, we will understand and we will send you oodles of hugs from each of us and our furry friends.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    She lives around this place in the shrubs, and we always loved when she visited this winter! I throw seed down for the birds, and she eats it, too - and this winter, dug a tunnel through the three+foot deep snow pack to get the seed without being exposed to predators! Smart little girl!
