Karla was very artistic and loved to do ceramic projects and paint her nails along with her daughter and friends. She enjoyed being involved with everything that had to do with her children. If it was football, cheerleading or robotics, Karla was always there to support them. She was a very selfless person and always made sure everyone was taken care of at all times. During the last few years, Mike and Karla found a love for wine and traveled around to various wineries and enjoyed many laughs along their journeys.
