  3. So many wonderful childhood memories shared with you and your family. Bare back riding around the paddock, horse rides to Red rock and the lake, talking about all our crushes in the back hay shed and nearly lighting it on fire 😬
    Your smile would light up the darkest of days.
    Your beautiful babes will be much loved and cherished as you were.

  11. What a shock to see. I am so very sorry Deb and family. Kara was a lovely person and it’s just so unfair her time was cut short. It brought tears to my eyes that someone who obviously had such great love and passion for life is now gone. Thinking of you, Simon and the kids at this incredibly difficult time.

  27. To Kara’s family, I’m so very so sorry to hear of Kara’s passing. I have so many memories of Kara growing up, playing netball at Alvie together and riding around Cororooke on her horse (I think she loved getting into gallop and terrifying me!). Kara, you are gone far too soon.

  32. All my condolences to all those that mattered in Kara’s life.
    Dearest Daughter, l have always loved you and will to the end of my days. I fondly remember your unique and infectious laugh, that everyone around you could not help but to laugh along with you. There are so many joyful memories I have of you, but too many for this tribute. You were very gifted and talented in so many ways and things that you didn’t give yourself credit for, such as Netball, becoming runner up Best n Fairest in the local league accumulating many trophies for your great efforts. The many ribbons you won in your most loved past time, Horse training and eventing. You were great at Piano and Taekwondo, but did not pursue them, running a successful business with your beloved husband. But your best gift to the world and biggest achievement is your 3 beautiful children, that are blessed to have a small part of your soul living in them for all to see. In the heavenly places you dwell now. I have no doubt you are happy and look upon us now know the truth of man and deeds. It is a parents worst fear and sorrow knowing the order of things, that a child leaves this earth before them.
    There are no words to express how I feel other than, Kara I miss you and love you.
