We met Karleen 19 years ago when we moved in beside her on Freeman Avenue. She was a great neighbor, a great person, and a great friend. She insisted on throwing a baby shower for us and she decorated our house when we came home from the hospital with Emerson. She was the type of person that would’ve done anything for you. We were so lucky to have Karleen be a part of our lives. Dan, our condolences to you, your family and Alex.
