Although Karen packed into her short life more than most of us would do if we lived to be a hundred, it's still heartbreaking that she's not teaching her young grandkids the drums somewhere and maybe looking back at February 4th 1983 as just another day during the period when she beat her anorexia and silenced her demons forever.
If Karen were alive today I like to think that she would be living in a home full of happy laughter and looking up at a wall full of awards for her platinum selling albums (both solo and as part of The Carpenters) as well as an array of photos of children and grandchildren. I'd also like to think that there would be photos of Karen and a man that was the love of her life and who had been a rock-like presence and source of support throughout her life.
Itís tragic that she never had anything like that to look back on as well as all the things she would still have to look forward too, but the fact that so many of us take time to think about Karen Carpenter and enjoy her music, whether it be on the 4th February or any other day, is proof of how much her memory lives on.
The girl done good !
RIP Karen Anne Carpenter
2nd March 1950 - 4th February 1983

But am thankful for all that she did sing. What a gorgeous voice she had! And legacy she left! A voice of pue crystalline and golden honey!
