Hello dear family of Karen Your mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and sister, was a wonderful friend of ours!! My parents Bruce and Hanna Bowen (who have passed away also) here on our farm in Pincher Creek Alberta, they were great friends of Arne and Karen. After Arne passed, Karen was such a strong person and continued on. My parents enjoyed their friendship so much and so did I. I think perhaps some of you came with your Mom out to our farm, we had the Brown Swiss dairy cows and lots of baby animals that your Mom loved seeing. I am still farming (our grandson is 5th generation) Your Mom and Dad were also friends with my Tante Elenore and Arnie whom have both passed away also. I seen Dear Mrs. Frederiksen's obit in the Pincher Creek paper and wanted to reach out to you all. I remember her saying she was moving to B.C to be closer to family and I hope she had a good life there for the rest of her remaining years. I will always think of her warmly for her kindness and gentle spirit. God rest her soul and I am sure you will have some lovely memories of your dear Mom.
