Most importantly, she loved her family fiercely as a mother, grandmother, daughter and sister. Within her community, Karen formed close relationships with neighbours and friends whom she considered like famil

Dear Mom, I want you to know that I’ve never looked up to anyone I’ve ever met like I looked up to you. Your optimism towards life, your morals, and your values, have made me the man I am today. You did the work of both parents growing up. I’ll never forget your dedication to me growing up bringing me to 5am hockey practices, or driving long hours in terrible weather to watch me play a single game.

You always put everyone else in front of you because it made you smile. I know that all you wanted was for me to be happy and I am. I have a beautiful wife and an amazing son that I will always look after and make you proud. Your legacy will live on through the hearts of the people you have touched.

Your family misses you Mom, but it’s time for you to rest now. I know you were joined with open arms and perhaps a totty and maybe even a round of golf. You’re my inspiration, my hero, I’ll love you forever Mom. Your little peanut will be safe and taken care of. This I promise you. I’ll see you again one day Mom.
I love you.
Jake , Ela, and Brixton “ little peanut “ Rauche
