We lived in Warren a few houses down from Kara on Shawn Dr. in the 60’s and 70’s.  I remember her in uniform visiting her sister family when I was very young and was curious about her then.  Her continued concern and Love for Kara has always brought a joy to my heart.  She seemed feminine but strong in a way that holds a family together.   When I was single visiting Michigan in the 90s Aunt Carol and I enjoyed time together hitting the single scene on “the east side”.  She was vivacious, cunning and possesed a lovely sense of humor you would feel cheated to have missed.  On behalf of the Calcaterra family, although we spent a fraction of time knowing her she will always be in our hearts and prayers   ~  Maluhia Dear One.
