Karlita was truly a special lady & we always enjoyed her & Herman's trips to Texas.We definitely have some great memories of stories and playing Mexican Train. I also know that she loved her family as she would share stories of what was going on in their lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with Herman and all of the family. Love Jim & Jim

Karlita and I were classmates at Jefferson Township School and lived about a mile apart during those days. Karlita was always friendly and supportive and a good friend to all of us. She and Herman had a long life together. My prayers are with Herman, David, Treva, and Roger and their families at this time.
