Karen & Gina
This is Karen, from Bristol, Connecticut.   Karen is probably my longest known friend.  Here she is with her granddaughter Gina.   Karen's folks and my parents were best friends while i was a little guy, and i have known Karen ever since she was born.   However  being a gentleman, i can not divulge when that was.  Karen and her husband Carlo have three sons, Chris, Adam, and Jason.   They own a lot of businesses, apartments, etc.  Karen is very active in business and civic affairs and is in charge of a large and growing organization of landlords.  Karen has an older sister, Leslie, and a younger brother, Kurt.   Carlo is probably the hardest working person that i know.   He is all business and is always on the look out for a good deal.
