On November 28th, 2009, Karen Kahler and her daughters Emily and Lauren were shot to death by Karen's estranged husband while they were visiting her grandmother, Dorothy, for the Thanksgiving holiday. Dorothy was also shot and as of yesterday was not doing well and being removed from life support. Sean, Karen's 10 year old son, escaped from the house physically unharmed.

We have created this website to help her family with immediate financial needs and Sean's ongoing care. Please feel free to leave comments for the family as I will be sharing this site with them. And, if you can contribute even a single dollar, it's a drop in the bucket toward helping this devastated family.

I'm correcting my last post. Memorial services will be held at The Federated Church in Burlingame, Kansas on December 5th, at 10:00 a.m. It is my understanding that friends are more than welcome, but it is a small church holding about 200 -250 people. If you live in Columbia and are interested in carpooling, please let me know. We are organizing a group that will meet at the ARC on Saturday morning and carpool to Burlingame.
