Remembering the VBS at the Nazarene Church, and how no matter what, Kari ALWAYS had a brite shining smile on her face. And her laugh, so contagious! No doubt that Heaven has brightened up! Our love and prayers for her family, for the Heavenly Father's strength and peace to surround them while they KNOW they'll see her again!
