I am so sorry to tell you that Karissa passed away today around lunchtime surrounded by our family at home. She fought so hard to be with us for 5 years, which we were so grateful for. I have never cried so hard in my life, but she did give us a gift of a smile right before she passed to remember her with. I know I will see her face anytime our 2 boys smile.
I will update again when we have information about her funeral, but I wanted everyone to know about what happened today.
If you have any happy stories you would like to share in the comments about Karissa, our family would love to read them.
