    I was looking for an a friend from my past, Brian Groppe. When I came across this memorial for his mom Karin. It was Brian’s mom that introduced me to Brian in the early 90’s. I met Karin at the Danish Canadian Club. I thought Karin was full of energy and I believe she loved her son Brian very much. I remember being invited to his mom’s home for dinner once. The food was fantastic but more than that, we laughed. I will remember your mom’s laugh, by doing this, I know she will always be in my heart. Brian hope you are okay. Sending you a hug and a kiss. Send me an email if you are interested in reconnecting. Your mom is with the Angels now if you remember that smile and laugh she will be with you for eternity! I am not religious or anything I just think if we keep the good memories of the ones who we love in spirit they will always be with us. It is scientific proven fact our bodies are made of energy and you can not kill energy. So there fore our spirits live in the laughter.
    With love from Susanne Hoiberg
