February 07, 2018
Vern and Family I was very surprised how soon Karen died after I heard of her illness I've known Karen since 1946 when we were both in the 1st grade at Pine Creek School, Her Mother Ruth taught us for the 1st and 3ed grade.My 3 brothers and 6 Smith cousins knew her from the Pine Creek Methodist Church and from Family Sunday dinners. I also recall that she returned from Wilsall to help with the Pine Creek Vacation Bible School We will all miss her. Edward Smith (Campbell, CA)
