Karessa was born on February 6, 1981. She was the most giving person you could ever meet. She never met a stranger. If you needed her, she was there for you. She was always giving, never the type to take too much or take for granted. She loved her family dearly and took care of her nieces and nephews as if they were her own. Her and Wilder loved going to Walmart to shop and they would always run into family and friends. Wilder was first in her life. She loved him with all of her heart, he was her world. She will be dearly missed by all.
