Karen Ball's memorial grove

Karen Ball grove

In memory of our lovely Karen, the most loving and kind daughter anyone could ask for. We only had her with us for 33 years but we will never forget her, and are so proud she was our daughter. God bless you Karen, Love always, from Mom and Dad

"You can shed tears that she has gone

or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray she'll come back

or you can open your eyes and see she's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her

or it can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she's gone

or you can cherish your memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back

or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on."
