Dear Frank, Felicia and Family;
Our sincerest sympathy and condolences upon hearing of Karen's Passing. Although it has been many years since seeing Karen, I will always remember her bubbly personality. Frank and I rode together for 8 years together to work as we both worked at the Watervliet Arsenal and I got to meet his wonderful family. May the many years you have shared together always keep Karen close to your hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.

Dear Mr. Petrosino, Felicia, Kim, Nicholas and all of Karen's family, I am deeply saddened to hear of Karen's passing. She was a great girl and friend during our high school years and later on when she and I car pooled daily to SCCC. I will always remember her vibrant, bubbly attitude and look on life. She would always want me to drive especially during the winter months. During our commute she would joke around and always looked for the positive in ever situation. She and I shared many happy times and some not so happy but we were always there for each other. She would talk all the way to SCCC cracking jokes and making me laugh. I only wish that our friendship had not ended there but years and life pass us by. I know that she is happily reunited with her mom, another great lady who also was very good to me. So please know that my heart goes out to all of you at this very difficult time. Karen my friend, Thank you for our time together, I love you my friend and I can hear you laughing at me now. My Deepest Sympathy, Carl Tambasco

Frank and Felicia and family, I was so sad to hear of Karen's passing. I have very fond memories of our years in school and the times we came to your house to hang out. I'm sure she is enjoying her reunion with her mom. God definitely gained a dare devil angel to love. God bless you and cherish the memories as I will also.
