To let all know. At 5:01 cst this morning. Karen Rae Sessions went home to be with the Lord. Please pray for the family and for my little man. I am on my way home and will see a lot of you soon. Love you all
Al I am so sorry to read your post. Karen, you, and your family fought a brave fight against her illness. Take comfort in knowing she is with our Lord and one day we will all be together.
Karen, it was an honor and a blessing to call you friend. May you rest in peace. Al, may God give you strength to get through this and watch over you and David.
I’m so sorry for your loss, Al. Karen was extremely tough and fought a hard battle. May she rest in peace and may the Lord bring some comfort to you and David in your time of need.
My thoughts & prayers are with you and David, hoping that God helps you two go thru this hard time.
Both you and Karen taught me a lot… how to fight, how to accept, how to share with friends and family…
All of us who have been thru a loss (and who hasn’t) can feel your pain and sorrow. Know that the A-T family’s arms are around you and David. Please accept our virutal hugs and love.
God Bless you Al and David and may you feel her presence and peace as she now watches you both from above and in your hearts. I’m so sorry for your loss .
May God give you strength and peace by knowing that He enfolds Karen in His love. Savor the memories of this very special woman.
I am so thankful, Al, that you have family and friends who love you and surround you and life you up in the days to come, as they have been in up to this point, and as you all grieve together. I pray for David, that in his little-boy way, with the innocence of a child, he will feel that he is in the arms of Our Savior. I am praying for strength for you, Al, physical strength, emotional strength. Supernaturally-gifted strength. Comfort. Peace. Hope. All of it. And that the memories, too painful to think about right now, trust that one day, they will offer immeasurable comfort.
A life all too short but well lived. She is gone from this earth but not from your heart and those who knew her. Words cannot help with the pain but hopefully knowing you do not grieve alone will help you find a future without her.
Goodbye my dear Karen. You are now whole again. You are free from the suffering of your human body for this I am grateful God has taken you home. Because I am selfish, I am sad, and I cry for your loss as I will miss you so very much.
Godspeed to you dear Karen and God’s peace to David and Al.
Al please be sure to pass on information on Karen’s funeral, time, place etc.
Could you also post an address where people could mail you cards?
My address is: 1302 Rathbone S.W. Wyoming, MI. 49509
What a reception she received, as Jesus escorted her to her reward… She is whole, she is complete, she is perfected.
Al, I’m sad for you and David and all who knew Karen and loved her, because although God did answer our prayers and healed her, His plan was different than our wishes. I pray for peace, for healing of broken hearts, and most of all, strength to remain faithful as you continue your journey here. May the Father of compassion comfort and console you.
My heart is breaking as I write this, but at the same time, I am thankful that our wonderful, loving Karen is out of pain and in peace with the Lord. I pray that her family finds peace, especially Al and David. We are here for you.
Goodbye, Karen Rae Sessions. We will miss you so much. We will not forget you. May you rest forever in peace.
Al and David,
We are so sorry for your loss. It was a blessing that we got to meet you both and of course Karen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today along with hopes for the future. Your Karen will never be truly gone as she will live on in your hearts and the hearts of all that knew her. Please stay strong.

Dear Al, I am so sorry for your loss. Our loved ones, never leave our side. Even if death does us apart, their souls still remain safe in our hearts. Your beloved wife was a wonderful person. Nobody can ever take her place. She will be missed by everyone. May her soul rest in peace. God Bless you and David!
Al and David, I am so very sorry for the loss of your dear Karen. May she rest in peace. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers for the Lord to give you comfort and strength in the days ahead. God Bless!
Dear Al and David,
I am so sorry to hear this. While Karen’s suffering is over and she is at peace, for those left behind, I know it takes time to make our peace with a life without them physically here. She obviously fought very hard to remain with you and I think we honor their memories when we find a way to cherish life, even without them here. You have taught David already what it means to be a man and a husband and I know he will continue learning what it is to be a father from your example. God bless and keep you both,
Al, when we remember the loved ones who leave us and start another journey. we either cry over their absence, or smile and remember them through the countless memories that have stayed back in our hearts. I’m sure Karen would want you and David to smile. God bless you both.
our deepest and sincerest condolences. Know Karen is no longer in pain, but is watching you with a smile and will always, until you see her again one day.
Al, we are so deeply sorry. You have watched over her with love, support and prayers, and been at her side every moment as she fought so hard for her life with her beloved family and friends. Now, it is Karen who will be watching over you and David with her endless love, together with our Lord.
May the angels that took your precious Angel from you, return Karens mighty peace, strength and wisdom and instill it in you. May the angels wrap their wings around you and your son, and let you rest from your long journey thus far, and may they stay with you when your ready to fly again.

Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. Unfortunately I am in a very selfish state now and all I want for Christmas is my Kpooky(aka Karen Rae) back. I want to grow old with her and we were planning to build a house and make life better for David and us. Now I dont even know how I am going to take care of David. Selfish and scared. Not a good state of mind to be in. Going over to sister-in-laws to get arrangements set and meating with Funeral director at 3:00. I will post funeral arrangements this evening. Love you all
You are in mourning, you need to let as much of the grief out as you can now as soon it will be time to start thinking forward.
So many wise words have been shared with you, I like Pam’s words “return Karens mighty peace, strength and wisdom and instill it in you.” Karen was a very strong woman and now it is your turn, take her strength and make it yours.
Al, you are not being selfish and YOU and David will be ok, you must have faith. Please promise us that you will. I don’t know how old David is, but why not ask him what he would like to do this Christmas? Get his input, maybe it will be something that the two of you can use as the beginning of traditions for you and him?
Don’t worry about the future just yet. The future will take care of itself. Take it one day at a time.
If you need help getting through this, don’t despair, you have an army of AT family at the touch of your keyboard. 🙂 Hugs to you.
She is still with you. Inside your heart. Dig deep and remember one thing that was special that just the two of you shared. It will make you smile..it will make you cry…and then you will know she is still right by your side. Show her your still there for your son and that her strength will bear you up during this trying time. Take time to be good to yourself…everytime you do, Karen will be there.
Al and David,
I am so heartbroken for you and your family. I can feel your pain, sorrow and sadness. I pray to God to give you strength and peace. We are all here for you, please accept our deepest condolences.
Rest in peace, Karen.
My most sincere condolence to you, Al and David. Your feelings are not selfish at all, they are so understandable and genuine. As you go through these next painful days you will have a myriad of feelings. Feel them and feel the love and devotion your darling Karen held for you. May you surround yourself with the love of your friends and family. What a testament to strength and commitment you have been,
God Bless you.
Al, we are so terribly sorry for your loss. Your love for Karen, and hers for you, shone through while you fought this awful battle. I hope that the love and support you receive from family and friends helps you find the strength you need to get through these terrible days. You and David remain in our hearts.
