It is with the deepest sadness and regret that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague, Karen Dalke. Karen sustained irreparable injuries from falling from her horse. A dedicated animal lover and long time supporter of Minding Animals, Karen will be forever missed. Our love and thoughts are with her family at this time.
Her husband Dan recently posted this note on Karen’s Facebook page – a moving tribute:
Karen and I have appreciated all the love and support. Although my beautiful bride is no longer able to sit with me, she still sits with me as I read the beautiful heart felt comments by each and every one of her friends. I have been selfish as I sit and read. Taking in each tribute, story, or comment. Each one just confirms what I have always known, Karen is and always will be the kindest, sweetest, most generous, woman I have ever known. I thank each and every one of you for raising my spirit these last few days.
