    We are so sorry to hear of Karen’s death. Though we have not lived in Baton Rouge in 50+ years, we still remember those wonderful days at Istrouma High School and especially the youth group at Winbourne Ave Baptist Church. May all of Karen’s family be blessed during these days of grief mixed with joy because of Jesus.
    Rusty and Brenda Boggans Walton
