  1. Dear Tracy and Family, May the love and memories you share comfort you thru the peaks and valleys when you will miss Karyn’s physical presence the most. She will always be near & if you’re open she will let you know she is watching over you, surrounded by loved ones and is okay in her new heavenly home. The moment I saw Karyn at the viewing and could see how peaceful she looked, the same words kept being repeated to me over and over again.. “I’m good, I’m good, let everyone know I’m good”. To lose someone so dear is so very difficult…it’s like a spoke in the wheel of your life is missing. My heart goes out to you and I will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Peace Be With You.
