AS SHE STANDS BEFORE THE KING The trumpet sound shakes the ground; the angels' voices ring She's reminded of the ones she loved; as she stands before the King No more sweat to swipe, no more tears to wipe No more heavy steps to tread; "You've won the race" The Almighty said As she stands before the King He tells her of her golden place; where she'll dwell for eternity A smile crosses her precious face; As she stands before the King As she dons her robe; He pats her crown; and He tells her "JOB WELL DONE"; she takes her place amoung the Saints; as she stands before the King IF EVER AN ANGEL TROD THE EARTH; IT WAS MY SISTER

Randy and family - I am so deeply saddened by Karen's passing. Karen and I worked together for many years at The Myers Clinic. We shared many laughs and personal stories. She will be sorely missed by you and the girls Randy. She loved her family so much.

Randall, family and friends, Karen Adams: She was a young lady when we met and very quiet. The lady who was training her knew the work inside out and she was giving Karen bushels of information and Karen was not taking a note. Time proved that she did not need the notes, that little lady used the information as if she had been the teacher. There was nothing she wouldn’t take on including an opposite point of view. Whatever she attempted she finished. She knew how to stand her ground in a very firm way. Still quiet, but firmness becoming noticeable. With her judgment, firmness served her well. A fellow came into the office one day passing out cigars celebrating the arrival of a girl. Karen stated, “Where’s mine?” You wouldn’t smoke a cigar, if I would give you one. There was a slight smile on Karen’s face, reflecting a “Oh yes I will”. The fellow gave Karen a cigar. I am sure you know the rest of this story. I still don’t like cigar smoke. This is Karen, challenging and conquering, throughout life. She enjoyed life. An example, I did not see, but would have loved to. Karen and friends were shopping at a mall, someone dared her to get into the buggy and let them push her around. You're right; conquered. If we were to make a list of examples, it would make a large , large book. I remember when she became a grandmother, her life changed, oh, oh. She was the proudest LADY on the land. Have you ever seen such another loving and doing Mother, assisting her children through all the ups and downs of family and friends. I hope so but I doubt Karen can be topped. There was a golden chair waiting for her and she is now assisting another group of angels. I am very proud to have been a part of Karen’s life. One last word, I never told Karen how much I appreciated her and her efforts. I have learned another lesson from Karen, praise folks today. Tomorrow may be too late. Thank you Karen: in your golden chair extending best wishes and a helping hand to those of us left behind. Lonnie Crane

I will miss Karen so much. Not only was she my co-worker but she was my friend. She always kept me laughing with her stories and answered all my "how do you do this" or "how do I make this" questions. She was a wonderful lady.
