It's with a very sad heart that I announce my resignation from BABW. The friends I've made through this company are ones that will last a lifetime. After nearly 15 years with BABW , it seems unreal that tomorrow will be my last day at my store. I will still be here on the forum and still play on my beloved Bearville. I am still happy to answer questions and help around here any way I can. At this time, I will not discuss the reasons or terms of my departure, so I would ask everyone to please respect my privacy in the matter. It's been a truly amazing experience and I will miss it terribly!

Oh my goodness. Karen. That is so sad. I totally respect your privacy, but I hope you left happily.
Also, you have helped so many people around this forum, Bearville and in your job, so you deserve a massive virtual bear-hug!! Thanks for all you've done (and will continue to do.)

Karen, I am so sorry to read this, it must have been a hard decision to make. I guess the atmosphere at BABW must have changed greatly in the past months.

Thank you for all your support and help, we always knew who to ask if we had questions, this was a nice feeling, especially since the CyBear Guides and a lot of the moderators were gone from this forum.
I am relieved to hear you will still come online and be on the forum and also on bearville.
Neon Smiley is right, you deserve a massive Bear hug!

Thank you my friends! Yes, it was a very hard (and sad) decision to make! I will miss it so much. Today will be really hard. I am kind of excited though - my daughter works at a different BABW store in our city and I get to "borrow" her for tonight! Can't think of a better way to go out than working for the first time with my kiddo!

Just wanted to pop in and give you hugs and thanks, Karen. Indeed it must have been a difficult decision to make, and indeed you should have your right to privacy about it. I'm glad that you'll still be here and on BABV. Hang in there!

Really sorry to read this, I wish you the best of luck. Thanks for all the help you give around the forum- I am going to miss seeing you at my Build a bear, it won't be the same going there anymore.
