Sometimes Kate and I like to mess around with her camera and take random pictures!
As most of you know i lost my sister to cancer today, July 11th. She's been at war with this disease for quite some time now. After going back and fourth form struggling to kicking its ass, it unfortunately came back too strong. She was one of the brightest lights in my world. Whenever anyone was around her they felt happy, simply happy.
She never stopped smiling, laughing, being the vibrant soul in everyone's lives.
Although doctors said the battle would soon be over, i truly didn't believe it. I felt like it was just like the last time, and the time before that. She'd come back on top and live to tell her story to many other women struggling with the dreaded "C". Regardless, she was and is an amazing woman, strong doesn't even begin to describe her. I'm now sure of the fact that she is no longer in pain or fear, and she's at peace with herself. I know i'll always have a peace of her in my heart, just like she'll be in everyone else's that she met on her journey on earth.
Taking pictures is a creative outlet for me. I love working with new people, friends, and collaborating. I'm so thankful for Kate, and the fact that she spent all day with my heartbroken self, just to make me feel a little bit better in the midst of everything.

Saturday morning of July 11, 2015 Karen had lost her difficult battle to cancer in her home with her loving family.
Karen faught long and hard for 5 and a half years. There was not one day that had passed by without her contagious smile shining through. She strived to meet life goals for her children, Jessica and Jacob. And she couldn't have done it without the continuous love and support from her soul mate and husband, Jeff Lehmann.
The hearts Karen had touched in her short life of 50 years is moving.
She had a gift!
