Lorrin lived a full life: best friends, slumber parties, horseback riding, overnight camp,Girl Scouts, and attending the school prom resplendent in a pink satin gown complete with tiara.  She swam with dolphins, participated in the school play, and she and her canine companion won first place at her middle school Halloween dance contest.  In documenting their victories, challenges and sorrows and sharing the tools and skills she learned to navigate life’s journey, Karen's story is inspiring and resonates deeply in the hearts of everyone.  KarenKain.com
