Staff Member Karen Hofstetter Died

9 posts in this topic

It is with great sadness I announce the death of our former chat director Karen Hofstetter from testicular cancer. Karen was chat director for nearly five

years and often went over the 24 hours in a day mark quite often. Not only was Karen dedicated to our members in crisis but she often fought tooth and nail for regulations she thought was right as well as for her members. I spent many hours in debate with her almost daily. I considered her a friend and I will miss her.

We have set up a memorial page for her here: http://www.lauras-playground.com/Karen_H_Memorial.htm

What a cruel, cruel irony to die of a disease that she should never have had, but because of circumstances of her birth that she couldn't help, she succumbed to it.

Rest in peace, Karen. Whether we do go on to another place after death or not, you're at peace, a well-deserved peace.

Oh my god and I never really thanked her enough for when she helped me that one night I was trying to hurt myself. Karen you will be missed so much. You are in a better place and I want you to know that your help kept many from ending it. Thank you so much and may you rest in peace. At least now we know you will be who you are up there :) God bless you.

Laura,

My condolences. It is sad to hear that cancer has claimed another life too soon. I am sadened that I will never get to know her and it seems that she did many good works here and in other places too. We all need to remember her and take some of her with us and go help someone in need today.

Peace & Love Amanda Joan

I didn't know Karen very well, talked to her a few times. She helped me with a crisis just a couple of times. But still helped me out. She is missed. Even by me.

Karen, thank you for everything. I don't know where you are now but I am sure it's a better place. I hope you get to be the real you too. I'll be thinking about you. *hugs* You are missed.

Love Lee.

I need to come on more often.

Karen helped me through a lot. She was an amazing person and I'm sad to hear that she is not with us anymore. To anyone who may have been close to her, I wish you the best.

This is a month late, but Rest in Peace<3
