“I was a year or two ahead of Karen Tow, when we were in High School together in Paradise, CA, where she was a cheerleader. Sometimes, when she rode my school bus, she would sit with me, and actually talk with me like I counted... I always appreciated that, and was deeply saddened to learn of her passing at a class reunion some years later.” - Robert A. Steinegger
