To the family and friends of Karla, my deepest sympathy and prayers are with you. I was so shocked to hear. I met Karla at Girl Scout camp so SO many years ago and we bonded instantly, only to find out at the end of camp that we even shared a birthday. I remember being sad about leaving camp, as if we’d never see each other again. Luckily, we stayed in touch. We took a trip to Six Flags, went to see an old-time-favorite band at Summerfest, and Karla came to my wedding. Unfortunately that was the last time we go to see each other. You were such a wonderful person, Karla. Peace to you and your family and friends. Love, Monica.

Dawn and Craig,

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven..” These words came to me when I read that your daughter had died.

Although I didn’t know Karla, I do remember her filling in for both of you at the Little Market….always attentive to the customers, but had her school books close at hand.

In the days ahead may our Lord give you peace. I will remember you and your granddaughter in my thoughts and prayers.

My heartfelt sympaythy…

I went to high school with Karla. She always had a smile on her face and was truly one of the most sincere and genuine people I have encountered. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathy goes out to all of the Bobo family. We met in middle school and were close friends through high school. We lost touch after high school but I will always remember riding our bikes around the neighborhood and hanging out at Southwood Glen. My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family.

I worked with Karla at sentry. So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a fun loving and outstanding person. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bill and her family. She is in a much better place now.

Sarah Murack

I was in the school of education with Karla. One semester she and I were field work partners and spent a lot of time together working on school projects together. Lauren was her proudest accomplishment. She was genuine and kind and I am extremely saddened by this news. I will pray for Lauren and her parents and sister so that they may always remember her and find peace in their hearts.
