Kara suffered greatly during her life but never failed to have a sense of humor. She was a very giving and loving person. A perfect day for her was being with the extended family. She especially loved being around her cousins and planning different fun things to do with them. Kara loved going to concerts with her friends. She loved planning vacations. She was very soft spoken and intelligent. When she was little she loved to record herself and tell jokes and just be happy. Kara loved spending time at mom-mom's and the late Larry Henry’s. She stole their hearts from day one.
