Just found out a couple of hours ago that she passed away unexpectedly a day or two ago at 45 years old.
Had two Homeland Security agents come by my house to deliver the news to my wife and me; helluva a shock. Still processing things.
At their request/suggestion, I accompanied them to my mom's house, to be there when they broke the news to my mom and brother. That was rough.
The agents said that she hadn't shown up for work for 3 days, so her supv. and another supv. went to her house to check on her, and after calling the local police to gain access, they found her body.
No evidence of foul play, drug use, or other red flags, but an autopsy will be peformed; we'll know in a few weeks what the cause of death was.
A dark day here.
If you're partaking this evening, please raise a glass to Karen.
Cheers, sis. Love you.
