Tribute To Karen Montgomery Griffin
1953-2019

We can all learn from Karen.....her “never say quit” attitude, her caring nature, her personality, her ability to raise herself above her difficult circumstances, her love for you and me and everyone around her.  She will be missed by all of us. We can take comfort knowing she is now free of pain, feel joy that we know she is seeing the face of God and mostly we know we are all richer having known Karen Montgomery Griffin.
