We miss you everyday, it’s been 3 years today. I will NEVER forget your bright smile and your amazing energy that light up every room. You had a special sparkle that can never be forgotten. Forever in our hearts. I love you.

I met Karaline back in 2012 on a computer game. And we would play for hours pretty much every single day. And we would play those games together for years later. We shared so much with each other and for the longest time we didn’t even know one another’s real names. But that didn’t stop us from becoming such close friends. As time went on we got shared our names and we wanted to go on vacation together. And though we didn’t get to meet each out face to face I’m so glad I knew her because she was so important and special to me. I had no idea what had happened for the longest of times but as I was changing emails I found a single message sent by her father from one of the old websites we used to play on. Knowing what happened, I wish I were able to give her a stuffed animal with glow in the dark stars on it, because I know it would have meant something to her. My deepest condolences for her family.

I’m very late on this but I want to make sure people know that I haven’t forgotten all of the fun times we had. I was one of like 3 or 4 people at NREP that she gave her yearbook photo to. I keep it on my nightstand. I never felt so honored in my life. To be considered that great of a friend that I was one of the few people she gave that photo to. I hope all is well Mr. and Mrs. Chapman.

My name is Piper and I am a Shetland Sheepdog. Karaline was one of my most favorite friends. Each Friday several years ago, it was my great joy to spend time with Karaline at Sherando High School. We took long walks through the halls and around the school grounds. We just sat and talked. We played Frisbee and fetch. I showed her some of my agility moves. One time, she brushed me. We always had such a good time together. It’s impossible for me to say who was happier when we saw each other. I am very saddened by Karaline’s passing but I know, when it’s my time to “cross the rainbow bridge”, she will be waiting on the other side to welcome me home. Piper

Most of you know that last week we lost our dearest daughter Karaline on Wednesday 7/17/2019 to Heart Failure. Here is what happened and a little about her. She had eaten and early dinner and went to her room to play on her computer. I got home roughly around 4pm and my wife and I ate dinner then. My wife said lets run up to Walmart. I said okay as I needed some stuff from there. I went to put our dog Marley in her crate and my wife went to let Karaline know we were going to run out. When she walked into the room she screamed and I came running. I called 911 and started CPR she took over for me and I went outside to wave down the rescue personnel as they arrived. They did what they could and then my wife road with the rescue squad to the ER and I rode with my mother-in-law. When we arrived they took us all to the room where they tell you the bad news. Now I will tell you a little about my wonderful daughter. She loved writing, she loved animals, she loved giving hugs to almost anyone. If any of you ever met her you may remember that first time. She would have said “Hi, I don’t know you but can I give you a hug” she did this with waiters, waitresses, hotel staff and all our friends. Some may not have needed a hug but I am guessing many did and that is why Jesus had her passing them out. She had just turned 20 on July 1 of this year. Yes she was way too young to go home with the Lord. She also loved her computer, she played many role playing games, drew art with her mouse, and many other things. She also loved eating at Red Lobster, although she did not like eating fish. When we went there she would eat the chicken tenders and order a virgin mojito. She would always ask the person up front could she pet the Lobsters and they would get one out for her to do that so thank you Red Lobster for making my daughters day each and every time we went there. As I think back on all the good times it brings tears of joy to my eyes as we were blessed to be there with her through them. At my company’s last holiday part I asked our CEO could my daughter do the money machine, he said yes. She grabbed a whopping $13 dollars and she was so happy to have done that. There were many good times, we had many vacations where she would make us laugh and cry. Words cannot explain all of it, but those with kids know what I am talking about. A little more about her. She was in the Autistic Spectrum with Sensory Processing Disorder. She went to a special needs school here in the Winchester area NREP where she graduated in 2018. We were working with DARS to obtain her Medicaid waiver so that she could obtain a job coach from NW Works to help her get a job and see if she could function in a job. Karaline really wanted to start working and earning her own money. She also has had a pacemaker for Complete Fetal Heart Block since she was 14 days old. We knew without the pacer we may have her only a couple years, but with the pacer we would possibly have her until she grew old. Well we ended up having her 20 blessed years. We are trying to remember all the good memories of her and this is a very rough time in our lives. As she loved animals and she had a heart issue, please consider making donations in her name to your local animal shelters and The American Heart Association. One last thing, those of you with children, please give them each a hug from her and tell them I love you, and let them know in words what their life means to you. This is something she would want from each of you. She now has a new home with our heavenly father, her club foot is fixed, her heart is fixed, her SPD is cured. She is playing with all the children that went before her. She is watching down on all of us from above. Those that received her hugs are doing better after getting those hugs. We do not have any arrangements at this time. I really want to thank all those who have reached out and helped us in many ways. Some have made dinners, some have brought over breakfast, some have come over and cleaned our daughters room. I really appreciated the carpet cleaning company Heavens Carpet Cleaners, I asked for the bill and he said it has been taken care of, I think I know who did that and thank you for taking care of this for our family. We have been so blessed to have such great friends. Our heart felt thanks goes out to each and everyone of you.
