Joy Svennevick - Became Friends from Blessed Sacrament 5 years ago

 I first met Karen at Blessed Sacrament School five years ago when Zoe and my daughter Anneliese were in Pre-K-4. We got a little more close when the girls did ballet together. I could tell right away I was going to really like her! It was my first year as a mom at the school and she had been there for a year and had that wonderful circle of friends. She made me feel very comfortable and was so easy to talk with. She welcomed me into the circle of moms and I am grateful! 
Karen always had a joke to tell and a smile on her face. She was so much fun to be with, I truly enjoyed it! 
She had beautiful eyes they shined and a smile I will never forget! She touched so many lives with strength, inspiration and most importantly her love for her beautiful kids and husband! I see that same sparkle in Zoe's eyes and the same amazing personality! She was so appreciative for all that her friends have to done for her but I am so appreciative for the time I had knowing such a wonderful woman! 
She will be greatly missed! Xoxo
