  5. Mrs. Mary and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Karon was a precious friend and we will miss her! It is so hard to believe she is not with us any more but we have seen how she touched SO many lives with her love, smile, kindness, caring and the love of her Jesus. And now she is in His Glorius Presence. May God hold you in His everlasting arms of comfort through the days ahead. Love, Martin Kay (Karen) Smith

  6. Ms. Mary I am so sorry. Have missed you at 4:30 Mass, but did know about Karen through my daughter-in-law, Marla Fontenot Burleigh. She and Karen were classmates at LaGrange. Graduated the same year….My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family….

  7. Ms. Mary, While attending Moss Bluff church (1978/79), Karon I was part of a very close friendship group. You Karon even cooked/hosted a home meal (pork chops as we recalled) for me another! After moving on with my job, I stayed in touch with Karon others there over next 30 years — even revisited LC on occassions. During calls, she'd update share plans. The last time I spoke with her was around 1 1/2 months ago… when she was about to undergo more treatment. I thought she was improving!? I was to call her again. She glorified God! It was truly an honor and a blessing to have known Karon — to have been her friend! YBiC, John.

  8. My deepest sympathy goes to you and your families. Karon was a great friend and inspiration to others. May god comfort you in the days ahead. Classmate Class of 79Tammy Renard Hale

  9. My deepest sympathy to the family for a life that ended too soon. May the promises in the Holy Scriptures brings comfort to you. The Bible promises one day soon, death will be swallowed up forever-Isaiah 25:8. We yearn for the day to see our dear loved ones again. Jesus promises, the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out -John chapter 5 verses 28, 29.

  10. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family. Karon is no longer in pain and is singing with the Angels in Heaven. She helped so many while she was here on earth and was loved by many and will never be forgotten. May you find peace. Love, Marla
