Condolences to Karen's (Roark) family.  Her daughter, Kasey, gave birth to a little boy in late February.  Though he weighed 6 pounds and was 21 inches long and was very nearly full-term he was stillborn..  The umbilical cord was wrapped around his little neck twice.  He was named Aaron Cecil Lester.  Kasey and her husband, Raymond have a little girl and were looking forward to birth of Aaron Cecil.  Their hearts are saddened by their loss.
