Rest in Peace my dear friend
I went to our local papers' website this morning like I always do and when I went to view the obits, I saw a name that crushed my heart. Karen McPhillips. I had worked for her back in late 2002 and for most of 2003. This woman was an angel on earth and I count myself very blessed to have been lucky enough to know her. Karen was an inspiration to me and I don't think I ever told her, I can only hope she knew. Confined to a wheelchair (due to MS) she chose to get up every morning with a smile on her face and her sunshine was infectious. I looked forward to going to work just to see that big smile. She taught me many, many things and we had some funny times and I will hold them to my heart and never forget.
Goodbye my dear friend, till we meet again in Heaven.
