On January 6th
2014 I lost an important person in my
life. Karen had been battling cancer for many years and resolutely carried on
in spite of the sickness attacking her body. After completing the most recent
round of chemotherapy, Karen told me she was "too busy to be sick." She was a
willful, determined woman. She was an inspiration who encouraged me to push
harder, reach higher, and to see past life's trials and behold the beautiful
things that lay beyond.
Karen was many things to many people:
sister, aunt, mother, grandmother, wife, a great friend, but above all she was
loved. Those same people who loved her were there in her last moments to see
her through the transition between our shared existence and whatever lies
beyond. She will be forever missed. Time will dull the pain of her passing but
the world will always be a little darker for the loss of the beautiful light
that is Karen Titus.
She is beyond the pain and suffering
that cancer forced upon her and those who love her, but her family still has
many things to overcome. Seth, her husband, works through his grief to pay for
numerous medical bills.
This page was created to help support
this wonderful family. The funds collected will go directly to them so please
feel free to offer whatever you can even if all you have to give is words of
I'll never stop fighting for your, Karen.
