 I have been a faithful watcher of Fox 29. The passing of Karen has really touched my heart! God Bless her husband and children.

Virginia

I've lived in the San Antonio area since2001.  I've always enjoyed the small town attitude of this large US city.  When Karen passed, I was blown over by not only the number of folks that sent their prayers, but overwhelmed by the number of local news agencies that also aired time in respect to Karen and her family. This is why people that don't live in San Antonio will never understand the people and the huge hearts they have. Karen exemplifies what the people of San Antonio are all about, giving to others before themselves.  God bless her, her family, and the great city of San Antonio!

Joe

My deepest condolences to all the Martinez Family, my heart hurts for such loss, my sister Nancy and I watched show back in November 2012 of how she was going thru different treatments to fight the cancer, my sister is fighting for her life since she was diagnosed October 2012 with aggressive cancer, Karen inspired her deeply and even though I never had the pleasure it hurts me deeply, RIP Karen may God bless you and your family always!!

Patricia

Sweet friend you will be missed I will never forget the good times we had cheering together at Athens elementary all the Shirley temples we would drink when your parents would take us bowling those were the days:))) May you rest in peace until we meet again love you :)

Julie

As I sit here with a heavy heart I can't help but to here hat little voice of my boyfriend who swears that I cry for anybody and especially people that I don't know!! Well he is absolutley right because I have a heart and I am human just as Karen was just by knowing that she is human being who fought a good battle saddens me to realize that she was a mother someones child and a wife and my hearts go out to her family and to those who knew her best, though I never met Karen I still feel as though I knew her through her daily apperance on the Fox, I heard news this morning and I can tell you that every since then my day has been very somber! I can only say that Karen no longer has to endure any pain and that she can finally rest her work here has been done and God called her home, I will never forget her and I will pray for her family daily to give them the strength to stay strong and to keep her memory alive!

My condolences to not only the Martinez family but to the KABB Fox San Antonio family. It is so awesome to see just how much she meant to everyone. I think what the KABB family is doing for her is so sweet. I know she is looking down on you guys and smiling. It's obvious how much she was loved.She will be greatly missed, but she will get to rest peacefully now. She will always be in the hearts of those she touched. My family has been touched by cancer, but my cousin was able to beat it, and will continue to beat the cancer. I like how she put it, "I have cancer, it doesn't have me". Poor sweet lady. She is an angel who is watching over everyone now. Good night sweet Karen, good night.

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

Candy

I was on my way to work this morning when I heard the news of Karen passing away. My heart dropped then I called my mother to tell her but she already knew. We loved watching her together on the nine o'clock news. We loved seeing her strength and courage to continue to work while fighting a Cancer that doesn't discriminate. I lost my son to Cancer at the age of four and watching what he had to endure I know that it was a tough road that she went down. And although she is gone her strength will live on through her family. My mother and I will always have her in our HEARTS....

April

My husband and I send our deepest condolences to the Martinez family as well as co-workers.

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths

for his names sake.

Even though I walk

through the darkest valley,

I will fear no evil,

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. PSALM 23.

God Bless

Mr.& Mrs.Julian & Rosario Martinez

To my friends at KABB:

I know you are all hurting with the loss of Karen. While I knew her condition had worsened recently, the jolt of actually hearing she was gone caused my heart great sadness. I heard the news after working the 18-Wheeler truck crash on 1-10 very early this morning and the sadness followed me all day.

I met Karen about six years ago at the media hospitality suite at NIOSA. Since then we worked on several stories while I at USAA and spent many fun nights at NIOSA since. Her passion for telling stories to help viewers was inspiring. And man, did she zealously defend the members of the KABB team. I'll never forget watching the local competition on the bank of monitors in your newsroom with her, and laughing at her contempt for the coverage compared to KABBs. Her courage in telling her personal story, clearly helped many woman understand their own risks, and without question helped save lives. The void I'm feeling in my heart, because her life couldn't be saved runs deep. I'm sure my sorrow pales in comparison to yours after losing your colleague.

My prayers are with her family - Joe and the kids, and all of you, her KABB family .


Our condolences to Martinez's family,I would watch the news at 9:00pm, loved to see her there with her KABB Fox News co-workers, May she rest in peace and shes in no pain. A lot of comfort for her closed friends/family. She'll be never forgotten..

Maggie

Our thoughts and prayers go out to both Martinez and Fox 29 news families. Karen impacted so many lives with her smile and story. She will be Missed.

Sarah

Karen, As You Shine From Above With The Wings God Has Placed On You. Help Us All To Understand This Pain & All Whom You Touched Our Lives Even By Just Watching You As If You Were Our Own. It Is So True That Time Is Borrowed, But Trying To Understand It Today As You Take A Road That One Day We Will See . God Only Knew Why It Was To Include All Of Us Far & Near In Your Life . Thank You For Always Giving Us All Just Time And A Smile Full Of Love For The World To See. Though Our Hearts Are Broken In Pieces, We Know One Day You Will Help Us All Gain Wings Just Like Yours, Because You Will Help God Guide Us Now As That Day Will Be When We Will See You Again. And To Your

Family We Will All Share Those Tears With You And Help You Carry Her Legacy.

We Will Find The Cure In Karen's Name And The Many Cancer Fighter's.

Our Condolences

We Love You Karen

I remember when she first announced that she was battling cancer and how strong,and determined she was about fighting this disease. I'm still in disbelief, she will be an inspiration to others, she will not be remembered about how she succumbed to the disease but about how she loved her fans, her support system and how hard she fought.

"Our God Is In Control"

This is not how it should be

This is not how it could be

This is how it is

And our God is in control

This is not how it will be

When we finally will see

We'll see with our own eyes

He was always in control

And we'll sing holy, holy, holy is our God

And we will finally really understand what it means

So we'll sing holy, holy, holy is our God While we're waiting for that day

This is not where we planned to be

When we started this journey

But this is where we are

And our God is in control

Though this first taste is bitter

There will be sweetness forever

Paul & Olga

There are no headlines

for everyday heroes

there is no ticker tape

no standing ovation

sometimes it's all they can do

to set their feet on the floor

in the morning


they go through their days

the best they know how



no rainbow need arch

through the sky

to inspire them

they have a special courage

shining deep inside

they go through their days

the best they know how

You were my hero Karen and you will be missed.

Mary


I just want to give our condolences for you loss. Our prayers are with your staff and with Karen's family. The loss of a loved one is never easy but we can find comfort knowing she is smiling upon us. News anchor Valdez, you did a great job in the opening segment. I'm sure it was extremely difficult but you did your best with a sincere heart.

Steve

I followed Karen's story with great interest. My auntie was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer from the outset also. When Fox29 shared that Karen would be trying experimental treatment a few weeks ago,I prayed with all of my heart that it would be a success for her. You see, my auntie, Machiko, lost her battle at around the same time. I hoped with all my heart... Hearing of Karen's passing makes me feel as if I've lost my auntie all over again. I want to tell Karen in Heaven that I thank her from the bottom of my heart for being brave and courageous in the public eye. Her family, also, for supporting her and allowing her to help so many people. A wise friend told me, when my Auntie Machiko died 2 months ago that"Absent from the body, means present with the Lord". I am so very sorry for your loss, to everyone that knew and loved and still love her. I hope you know how very much we all love you and hope so much that you feel God's unending love surround you.

Renee

My deepest sympathy goes out to my"sister" Karen in the fight,she was an inspiration for me.My prayers for her husband and children on their loss may God give them comfort and strength

Sandy


one hundred years from now.

It wont matter what kind of car you drove.

what kind of house you lived in.

How much money you had in the bank.

what clothes you wore but the world is a better place because you were important in the life of many people.

My heart still hurts I cried when I heard about Karen yesterday morning; it was my bday and my daughter in law called me to give me her blessings and I couldn't even speak without tears!  I only knew Karen via the news and I watched her every night.  I saw how wonderful and remarkable she was; she went through the hardest part of life anyone could go through and she survived and never took it for granted that god gave her some more time to love her family and her KABB family. She is an inspiration to all of us and Karen I will always love you and keep you in my heart!  I miss you already and your family will continue your legacy. My condolences to the family and friends. 

In my profession we have the great opportunity to meet and interact with professionals in local media. Karen was always one of those true professionals. She made our job easy by her comforting words and enthusiastic spirit. Here on earth Karen-you were a warrior. A fighter until the end. Now in heaven you are a guardian angel, and I know it is God's intent to let you continue to shine as you watch over the family, friends, and viewers that loved you so much. You are and always will be an inspiration to all who knew you or knew of you. You fought the good fight -- now you may rest in peace.

I saw you all this morning, it just bought tears to my eyes. My condolences to all of you, she was much loved. I lost my husband in July and know that it will take time, but she will never be forgotten!

An angel sang
in the heavens tonight
And welcomed another soul
with pure delight

A soul that left
loved ones behind
And suffers no more,
is peaceful of mind

The angel then guided
the joyful soul
To meet the Lord with grace,
Welcome, my child He said
And gave the soul
a warm embrace

An angel sang
in the heavens tonight
as the Lord received
a precious soul
with pure delight.
