  1. My heart is very sad to hear of Karen’s passing. She was a great friend in high school and we had seen each other for a few years since then but lost touch over the years. I have so many wonderful memories of hours of laughing and being young. God speed,Karen to your eternal home with your loving God. You will be missed.

  2. Our heart goes out to family of Karen Bauman. We’ve know Karen for long time since her folk live across street from us when we move to new home in 1961. Then know the whole Ehlers family for long time & it almost like part of family. But sure will miss her.

  3. I too am saddened to hear of Karen’s passing. I also knew her from high school and tho I was a year ahead of her we still developed a good friendship. I know she’s in a better place now. Look for me Karen, for I will be there too.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
