My condolences to the family. As others have said, Karisa had an infectious smile. Her life is an inspiration as she ran her race with courage. Now the baton has been handed off. Thank you for such a wonderful send off. My prayers are with you all.

Karisa was a bright loving compassionate young woman.
Her heart for people always shone. Over the years I watched her grow into a confident nurse and amazing friend. She was loyal. She was strong. I’m so grateful I was able to go with her to get her tattoo “do everything with love” because I will continue to live that out in memory of her.
Also Eneida, Wayne & Josh I continue to pray over you. For God’s comfort and strength. “The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.”

Heaven gained another angel by taking this bright, caring young woman from us–but far too soon. We’ll miss Karisa’s big beautiful smile and remember how she put others first. The world was a better place for having Karisa in it, and we send sincere condolences to Wald family for this profound loss. She’ll live on in all of our memories. ❤️

Howard and Cheryl levins

What a smile, this always shows heart. She loved and was loved. God’s plans were much bigger for this amazing woman. She is a child of the most high king. Her time here was brief but powerful. Her hope as a nurse was to heal and show compassion to those put in her path. She did that with love, promise and courage. She fought the fight and won the race and now is healed and with her father in heaven. Our love goes out to family and friends. They will see her again. She will be waiting with that beautiful smile ready to put her arms around you. Hold tight to memories she will never be far from you. Praying for your family..xx
