Funeral Home Book of Memories


  1. I love that Sammy was included. When my brother died several years ago, we included his beloved dog in his obituary as well.

    Karin's family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Karin was a beacon of light for all of us living well with Lymphoma and other chronic conditions. I happened upon her blog right after I was diagnosed with NHL. Every time I read her writings it gave me courage and great insight into how to live well with a chronic condition. Karin, you are a part of all of us now; thank you for being our teacher.
