PN:

Karen Lee Drover-King died on August 18th, 2011, of complications following a second surgery to arrest the cancer consuming her body.

Karen lived in England since the late ’70’s. She is survived by her husband, Terry King, her child Keith Bell, and her brothers, Dennis and David.

Your sorrows are past, sis. Rest in peace.

Is there any non-relative observation point to determine the truth? Lucky you! You don’t have to tune in next week to see the thrilling conclusion to the story…… You can, instead, watch the following two videos.
