Karen passed away Jan 2 in a tragic helicopter accident near Delano, California. Today was her memorial, very fitting, with 2 Ventura County Huey's leading the pack and Chuck Aaron in his Red Bull BO-105 not far behind. Even had an appearance by a Little Red 22!

Karen was known by many and will be missed by all. Just wanted to post something in case others who know her didn't hear about the accident.

Karen was a wonderful person and I know everyone who knew her will miss her. If I haven't said much about this it's because when something like this happens to someone you know and like words often seem trivial and pointless.

Rest in Peace Karen.

I met her once out in a cherry field. She was a real nice lady.
