Herbert, of course, knew Kari as an enthusiastic and energetic coworker at Federal Mogul, and we both knew her as a creative, fun and lighthearted lady through our business dealings with her. We pray that God will soon bring you comfort and peace.

    May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed find Light, happiness and peace. Amen

  26. Pam Boone June 18, 2016 at 5:51 am

    Kari was the kind of person that, if you were sitting alone at work, she would ask you to come sit with her. If you had to go to an area you didn’t like and saw Kari there, suddenly it didn’t seem so bad. She could make you laugh or listen to a problem, and often both together. I’ll miss you Kari

  27. Linda Cunningham June 18, 2016 at 12:45 pm

    Kari was a wonderful Friend and co-worker. She will be Greatly Missed. She had a way of making you in a good mood just with her Smile. She just had this way about her, and her kindness. The world needs more people like Kari in it.
    Fly high Kari spread your wings.
