One of the most wonderful human beings I have ever known. Her smile and caring touched everyone she met. Karen was a bright, uplifting, unselfish friend. I'll not forget picking up the newspaper at the end of our 1/4 mile drive, seeing that unforgettable smile under the terrible headlines and walking in shocked tears back to the house.

These pictures here bring back memories,

this picture, ...*frowns*

Anyone that ever encountered Karen,
came away with a smile.

As Adults, we now know the word a " beautiful soul",
and we know it when we meet them.

I did not have 2 be "Grown Up" to see this beautiful soul when in high school, she beamed caring, hope, happiness,...

Jesus this makes me sad!

Strength 2 her family; my love, & my sorrow

She was sweet. How did she pass? What happened?

Karen, her husband Denis and their 14 month old son died on Swissair flight 111 in Sept. 1998. They were traveling from NYC to Geneva, Switzerland to visit his parents-who lived in eastern France near the Switzerland border-and to introduce them to their "new" grandson.

The plane was consumed with fire (sparks from faulty wiring ignited the insulation) and went down in the Atlantic Ocean off Nova Scotia. All 229 passengers died. I remember the crash but went back to look up the details. While searching I found the following

A beautiful picture of Karen and her family:

An excerpt from a CBS news article of passengers' stories:
Denis Maillet and wife, Karen, of Baton Rouge, La., and their 14-month-old son, Robert

The 37-year-old engineers planned a two-week vacation to introduce their son to his French grandparents.

"The Maillets were very excited about going home to visit Denis' parents," said the Rev. Gerald Burns of St. Aloysius Church in Baton Rouge.

Maillet, a native of Lyons, met his wife through their work as engineers, said Jayne Thibodaux, a family friend.

He spoke no English and she no French, but they quickly learned each others' languages and fell in love, she said.

I felt her story should be told.

This makes me sad:

Karen was very sweet and kind. She had such a contagious smile. The world needs more people like her.
