We knew Karen for over three years with our connections to Duke and UNC. Both Greg and I had the opportunity for taking care of her during her Cardiac Rehab program in UNC the past few months. We have yet to see a more bubbly and joyous person in spite of all the handicaps. We just love her and pray for her soul. Our condolences to her nearest and dearest who we are sure will sorely miss her. May her soul rest in peace. Love, Uma and greg
