Karen Land on Roadfood passed away.
I wished her Happy Birthday on Facebook and her partner messaged me back with the following:
Paul, this is Terri, Karen's partner. I am so sorry to tell you, she passed away in July. We had 35 years together - too short a time. I haven't deleted her facebook page, just haven't been able to take that step. She treasured the photos and messages you two shared - thank you.
