She had the ability to not only spread infectious laughter but also kindness and love. She showed generosity to all around her. Through her caring heart and beautiful spirit, she contributed to the community and made friends everywhere she went. She had a type of kindness that reflected in her love for her children and her animals. She had a passion for makeup, long boarding, music, anime and tattoos.

  1. I met Karli just one time when my husband and I were lucky to recover her longboard last summer when it was stolen. I saw her post on FB and happened to spot it that very same day. I believe people are put in the right situation in the right place for the right reasons. The chances that I saw her post that day. The chances that I find and recover the board that day. But all for a reason. I feel lucky to have met Karli even if only for a brief moment. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. Sending condolences to her family and friends.
