Remembering Karen

My wife of nearly 30 years passed away on November 2, 2019 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. These are the words I read to the hundreds of people that attended her memorial service. I share them with the same desired outcome as I do with anything I write. I hope that you will hear a bit of your own voice through mine. You may not have lost a spouse like me, but that doesn’t matter. You have your own stories of loss. And all loss needs to be grieved.

The songs I mention in the eulogy are linked to Spotify below:

Hold My Girl by George Ezra

Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers

Beloved by Mumford & Sons

  1. I think of Karen so often… When I am biking, when I am struggling, during a good laugh, and when I enter any small, family owned establishment, But especially when I need the support of a genuine friend! I miss her so much! Hugs to you, Kevin.

  2. Kevin,
    Memories of Karen fill me with joy and make me so glad to have gotten to know her when I worked next door. She did always make me feel as though I was at her home. She was an inspiration for me and I will always cherish her memory. Thank you for sharing her. Love and hugs for you, friend.

  3. I think of her every single time I drive. Y or walk by the old bread and cup shop. Was amazing food and people. Always felt a warm feeling seeing that place. She will be missed.
