A book of sentiments submitted by friends for a special birthday gift.
Karen is the second child and only girl in her family of three brothers. Her family moved often when she was growing up, which forced her to develop social skills of knowing and liking people of diverse backgrounds and cultures with very different likes and dislikes - sometimes to her disadvantage. She was and is an exceptionally pretty girl and frequently questioned about her heritage. Karen possesses many admirable qualities as illustrated by the sentiments of her many friends. She has a loving spirit and I am enormously proud to call her my daughter.
