Our Miss Molly/Karen has passed on

Postby Lee » Thu Nov 28, 2019 11:01 am

It is with sadness that I announce that Karen has passed on. I believe it was several days ago. I know that I missed her comments here and the UOAA forum and will continue to miss her for some time.

Here is from the UOAA site

May you rest in peace, Karen.
