“I am Karen's aunt. I loved Karen. Her death nearly destroyed my sister, Beverly Harms-Greenwell. Karen spent her first 5 years growing up in my parents home. She seemed sad and lost from a very early age, and that led her to years of angry rebellion, which is how she ended up coming to the Peopl's Temple in Los Angeles. My sister never healed from her grief over losing Karen. I am SO glad that I found your website, and seeing her photo has comforted my heart. I will be visiting the Evergreeen Cemetery in 2 weeks. I hope to gather more information before I go. THANK YOU for your research on this tragedy. ” - Janet Arnold
