Living directly across the street, we have gotten to know Kari and Jon. We will miss our view of Kari, on her front step, sitting in the sun, greeting us always. Our best to you Jon.

Thoughts and prayers to the Block family. I knew Kari during high school and even though we lost touch I often thought of her kind and caring personality. I will always remember her as a gentle soul. God Bless Kari and her family.

My heartfelt sympathy to the Block family. I remember Kari as the sweetest child...I am saddened that she was called home at such a young age. God Bless the memory of our sweet Kari.
