Peace and comfort to you and your family!
Just got back from a trip enjoying CCS equipment and am so saddened by this news. Thoughts and prayers out to you and your family, Dan.
Sorry to hear of this, I pray for peace and comfort to Dan and family.
God's peace, Dan. The memorial funds choice is a swell one. Your memories of Karen live on in the preservation of this quiet place.
Condolences Dan and family.
I met you and Karen at your parents' condo one time.
nctry: "I was a little thrown off, Jackfish. You posted she passed on the third. I saw a deal saying she passed the 10th? "
Sorry about that. My original post has now been edited to the correct date.
I was a little thrown off Jackfish. You posted she passed the third. I saw a deal saying she passed the 10th? No matter, it's very sad to have such people like Dan have to go through this. I think he's like a brother to many of us. Boppa, Housty9, magic paddler all have lost spouses in similar tragic ways the last few years. And the support of friendship, thoughts and prayers have been much appreciated by all. Dan has been a great supporter of us and for that I thank you Dan. I guess I'm just kinda thinking how lucky we are to have such a great circle of friends who care deeply about each other.
Love ya Dan! And God bless...
Love ya all....
My condolences, God bless all of you.
Dan, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
Very sorry to hear of your loss. Thoughts and prayers from the Spartans.

My sister in law died June 3 of bladder cancer. The end was coming but no one knew when. The quickness of it really hit her husband hard. He is struggling.
; after losing his soulmate of 45 years. May God grant you a different journey of less pain.
Karen passsed the morning of Sunday, June 10, 2018. She asked that in lieu of flowers that donations to the Save the Boundary waters would be appreciated. https://www.savetheboundarywaters.org/KarenCookeMemorial
Karen and I met on the edge of the BWCAW and we need to protect it's waters and from possible irreversible pollution sources. She fought a good fight against Ovarian cancer for 2 1/2 yrs. She will be missed greatly by Me my family and all who knew her.

Thoughts and prayers to Dan and his family. I never met Karen, but I know she was one great woman.
About 10 years ago when CCS had their 30th anniversary 30%off sale (each month of the year they had a different product 30% off) we purchased 2 pink Rucksacks for our young daughters as birthday presents. Karen found out that they were birthday presents and sewed two pink toiletry bags and sent them along w/ the packs w a Happy Birthday note for the girls.
May perpetual light shine upon Karen.
Our condolences and prayers for your family Dan.
I pray that the family finds peace and closure now that her suffering is over.
