Super nice person. I met her at every SGGA I attended. There will certainly be an empty chair there for her this year and I'm sure it will be covered with flowers. I'm so sorry to her family at this time.

My heart aches for Karin's family....such a long and hard fight she fought....and so great a loss for the members of her "extended" family, the glider community.

My fondest memory of Karin was at the 2011 SGGA. Thinking I had it made in the shade, I boasted about the gift I had brought to the "Dirty Santa" exchange that hadn't been selected until it was MY turn to choose--a $25.00 gift card to JoAnn's attached to a small notepad. Then Karin's name got called (what?? I thought everyone had GOTTEN their gifts! tant ).....with this cheesy grin, she walked up to me and said she wanted MY gift! grin I looked at her smiling like the Chesshire Cat, and told her if there's ANYONE that I would willingly surrender my gift to...it was her. :lshower: Only "material girls" like us would understand how precious that gift was...and my heart SANG to hear that she was going to try to start sewing again.

Dear angel, I wish you an infinity of peace and joy and no more pain. hug2 We left behind on Earth will miss you dearly, and you will remain in my heart as long as I'm here. Every time I dig in my box of pouches, I will remember you lovingly...I have a pair of babies who won't sleep in anything BUT a Daydreams pouch. Somehow they will get by..... upset .....as will we all....but you've touched MANY souls, and we say thank you for your love.

Thank you Lynsie. I can't view FB now/at work, but thanks for providing the information. I've been on the ambulance all day. Maybe someone who can get to FB should post the info in it's own thread, and please include Jim's address there too (for sending cards) so this information doesn't get lost in this thread.

I will be there Teusday afternoon.

This is sad news indeed. But joyful too in that she is experiencing the joy of heaven.
Prayers for her family.

Karin was such an amazing and wonderful woman. We would all have such a good time together at the gatherings and she will be so very missed. mlove

I have so much to say and no good words to say it, but I know it's what all of us who knew her online and in person, however briefly, are feeling. Karin was an angel on earth. She was so sweet and so wise. I thought of her as a bit of a kindred spirit in that no matter what the drama of the day was, no matter who was mad at whom in the glider community, no matter how vicious and evil people were to each other, Karin never seemed to become involved in the crap. She never seemed to let other people's opinions or harsh words about others effect how she felt about or treated people.

I know I haven't been in the online community nearly as much or often as I used to be. My life became fuller and busier and I became pretty burnt out on the drama and the things people fought over and had to choose what was important to me - which is relationships, friendships, loved ones. I miss the people here and I miss the good times, but I don't miss the bad things. I always said I could like or love a person and not like something they say or do or how they behave at times and I always felt that Karin was that way, too. We're all human and we all have our moments of anger and frustration and pettiness, even me wink and I'm sure Karin did, too, but I can't remember a time that she was ever really vicious or mean to anyone. She had such an infectious smile and laugh and was just a joy to be around. We will miss her so much, but I know she is in a much better place where there is only peace and love and joy.

And, of course, my gliders and I will always treasure and cherish every Glider Daydreams item we own! angel

Step over the Rainbow Bridge, Karin. So many animals are waiting for you.

You will be greatly missed, always remembered and loved forever, plus one more day.

So glad you're finally at peace and in God's arms.

Oh my goodness. Karin has been an inspiration to me and countless in the community, I know. I fully believe she must have been welcomed home by SO many furry little angels. :rbridge:

I did not know her. But I am sure She was a great person reading all the positive being said.
She is on the other side with all the critters shes helped, loved, from close and near.
You helped so many Karin, fought so hard for yourself and others.

Time to rest Pouch Queen.

Watch over all over us. Fuzzy and none.

While I didn't know her I did know of her. I'm so glad to read about her here and know that she lived and died on her own terms. Cancer is such an awful thing!! I'm saying prayers for her family and friends during this difficult time.

Karin has been my friend, my confidant, my left hand, my rock, my support, my savior, my partner of many a prank. She was always there when I thought I was falling and she showed me how truly blessed I was. I was blessed with her presence, not only with me, but through the miles as well. I was given the opportunity to say good-bye to her when she was still with us, and emotionally I couldn't handle going to see her after she passed, she KNEW I loved her, she KNEW how I felt. The memories I hold of Karin, are happy ones, with her smiling and being the spitfire she was. she gave rofl a whole new meaning. She stood in a class of her own, walking her own path, standing her own level of ground.

I have been torn with the sadness of her not being with us physically, but ecstatic that the pain is finally over and she can now be pain free. a toss, of the deep friendship but yet the feeling of betrayal that I wasn't saddened more. My prayers were focused towards her on a daily basis, but yet the anger for the pain she was going through was as well.

My prayers are with Jim and the kids, but I am glad they got to get to be with her on her days when she needed them the most. we take so much for granted with the miles between our friends and ourselves, that sometimes we are never really ready to say good bye.

With Karin, I refuse to say good bye.. but instead say.. till we meet again my fiend. Baybe is waiting for you, probably perched on your shoulder as I type this. I know all I have to do is talk, and you will be listening. Death can stop the heart from beating, but will never stop it from loving. I Love ya girl !!!

I am so sorry for your loss. Karin welcomed me into the glider comunity when i really knew nothing. I had rescued an amazing little one who was kept in a tiny bird cage and Karin didnt know me from Adam but she borrowed me a perfect cage for him right away until I could find a nice one for him. She was an amazing lady with a big heart.
