To all of Karja's friends: Thank you so much for the remembrances. She is with us all, and though some of you may not have seen her for awhile, you were always in her heart. I was always amazed at how much she remembered of a person after not seeing them for years and years. You were all a part of her life. It goes without saying that if you were her friend, then you are very special person. She was only friends with the good ones.

Karja illuminated my life. I am a better person for knowing her, and I will truly miss her.

I have many fond memories of Karja coming to my home with my brother (Phil Ferrari), when my son Anthony (now 15) was a toddler. I'm sure after many hours of suffering Karja is now in a better place. May she rest in peace.

Karja and I have been friends for almost 30 years. We have shared so many wonderful times in sports, school and life in general. It was a pleasure to have her as a bridesmaid in my wedding and to be such a part of my family for so long.

Although she suffered so much in the end, she hung on to life for as long as she could. I was so blessed to have known such a person with a huge heart. Hopefully her mom and nana were waiting for her.

A beautiful angel that will look over all of us has entered heaven on Sunday, September 12, 2004.
