Lynn B. Friedman - Atlanta Homes ODAT Realty: Karen Anne Stone May She Rest in Peace - Remembering Her Wit & Wisdom

Karen Anne Stone May She Rest in Peace - Remembering Her Wit & Wisdom

Karen Anne Stone May She Rest in Peace -
Remembering Her Wit & Wisdom



If you "knew" Karen Anne, you knew her. She didn't pull any punches when she had an opinion - that's for sure.

Please share a memory of Karen Anne or an anecdote so those who never "met" her will get a flavor of her remarkable personality.

Here is a quote from her Profile:

'The majority of  [my] business is with people who are either
referred to [me] by ... past clients or introduced to [me] by [my]
"Sphere of Influence..."  which is a fancy phrase for all the people
who know [me], and of course, who like and trust [me] enough to
introduce their own friends and family members to [me] when
they have "real estate needs." 

When that happens, [I am] honored by it, and do [my] very best to
show them that [I] respect, appreciate, and deserve their trust. 
By the way... [I prefer] to call ... "sphere of influence"  ...
"sphere of relationships."'

Didn't "know" her? Take a minute to read the Post
Tribute about Karen Anne from Steve Shatsky.

All the best - Lynn

My anecdote about Karen Anne is why I think of her often. She, scoffingly, corrected me when I said I was writing a Blog. No, she stated, emphatically, "you write a POST not a Blog!!"

So always, in conversations or in writing, I carry Karen Anne's  correction inside my brain: writing a POST!
All the best - Lynn

Thanks for sharing this Lynn, so many of us have been awaiting news of her fate and hoping for a recovery.

I still remember being one of the first to come upon her final post late the night before her surgery.  She shared her fear in the post and it was a well founded fear in that her life was not the same again.

Said a prayer for her that night and several times since then, and will again tonight.

Thanks for sharing this update Lynn.

I looked forward to her posts and I've missed her being here. I think of her often, wondering what happened and whether she would suddenly show up again one day. I still wonder what the last three years were like for her. At least now I know she is no longer in pain and free from suffering.

Lynn I did not follow Karen Anne's blog but she commented on my several times.  She was a very active and outspoken member and will be missed by many.

Lynn- I do remember her last post.  But what I remember most was her honesty in her comments.  I so looked forward to reading her comments whether or not she left them on my post or others.

Hello Lynn

Thanks for putting this post out and actually someone re-blogged this post!

I always loved commenting back and form with Karen many years ago very late at night and she has been and will continue to be missed by many.

"REST IN PEACE" Karen Stone
