    My heart goes out to all of you! Mrs. Kirsche was like a second mother to me during my high school years. Karen, you are a part of me and I hurt knowing the pain you are experiencing. I remember doing our homework together at your house and how your Mom would always feed me. She was such a force to be reckoned with, so smart, strong and dedicated to her Lord and family. She left a big thumbprint on my life and I am a better person for knowing her. She will be terribly missed here on earth but to be absent from the body, is to be in the presence of our Lord. May she rest with the angels now!
