Michael, Karen was an extraordinary person that I enjoyed working with in the IMD/NSP. Without her hard work and dedication my job would have been much more difficult.

Sorry I didn't hear about this earlier. As a member of the National Ski Patrol, I have really appreicated the work and dedication that Karen gave to the Intermountain Div. She will be greatly missed. Not only as a patroller but as a great friend.
