It is with the utmost and deepest regret that I have to make this post to let you know that Karen is no longer with us anymore, passing away at 6.30pm USA time.
Karen has been battling with cancer for quite some time now and just when things appeared to be going well for her she took a turn for the worse in the last few days.
Karen leaves a loving husband and a wonderful family who I know will miss her dearly.
It is very hard for me to talk about this as Karen was one of my closest friends ever. She took me under her wings and guided me, not just through my business but as a true friend. Karen was my best friend, but she could also be like a mother to me at times too. She cared for many many people including myself, even being my online nurse too at times.
What can we say about Karen... so much; she was open, would always say it as she saw it, which some people found hard to understand, but this was just how Karen appeared to some. Deep down, trust me, Karen was the most caring woman in the world, beyond no doubt, but was also under a lot of pressure with her work as well as her illness in the later part of her life which she kept well hidden from most.
I lose track of how long now but I believe it has been three or four years I have known Karen and in that time we must of spoken at least once every single day 365 days of each year. Life without her being there will be the most challenging thing I personally have ever had to do in my life.
I will miss her so much as I know all her family and many friends will.
Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
