Sad news

With a heavy heart, I report the passing of Karen Allen on Saturday, September 5. Karen and her husband Rich were part of our Fair Oaks Support Group family. To those who knew her, Karen was a strong, determined, spunky, down-to-earth, beautiful person who faced the challenges of PD with grace and good humor. She was a friend and role model to many of us. Our prayers and thoughts are with her husband and loving care partner, Rich, her children and other family members. A celebration of Karen’s life is being planned, and we’ll update you when more information is available. If you’d like to send a card, the address is:
Rich Allen
The Virginian, APT 327
9229 Arlington Blvd.
Fairfax, VA 22031

Another member of our Fair Oaks family, Louise Sousk, is very ill and is in the care of Capital Caring Hospice in Arlington. Edward, her loyal and caring partner, is with her daily. He has been keeping us updated on Louise’s condition at our recent meetings. For those who wish to send a card of support to Edward, his address is:
Edward Mark
5465 Truxion Court
Burke, VA 22105

    I lost a dear friend this week. I dedicate the Parkinson’s Walk on Sunday to her memory. I’ve written and rewritten a memorial and each time its either been too personal or too cold. If you want to know more about her, you can read the post, “Losing Herself”, on the WhyNotMeBlog.
