I have known Chris and his family for almost 20 years in San Antonio. Although I did not get to hang out with Karen much, I know she was loved by her family. I am donating a gift to Young Life Northwest San Antonio in honor of Karen Swensson. Young Life is a group of caring adults who volunteer and sacrifice their personal time, leave their comfort zone and cross over into the world of kids. ... When adults walk with them and believe in them, kids begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose, and their lives are dramatically impacted.
