Your Mother used to have a crush on Pee-Wee Herman. She was kind-of twisted in that way. She also used to have a crush on the lead singer for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. A boy she liked in high school was named Kregg Snyder. He and Karma kind-of had an on-again-off-again fling type of relationship. This Kregg guy had another girlfriend who he refused to completely break it off with for Karma. I believe her name was Heather and she also went to South Side High School in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Karma was obsessed with Kregg for many years and would frequently have dreams about him, even up until you were born. I think your Mother wanted a sense of closure with Kregg and never got it. That's why she used to have dreams about him.
She also used to date a guy named Keith George who graduated from Bishop Luers in 1988 (a Catholic High School in Ft. Wayne, Indiana). He once told me that he wanted to marry her but their relationship ended after a few months.
Karma also dated a man from the middle east named Marwan. (Not sure of spelling, will ask Beth Belot Motyka because she knew him too.) This was after high school during her brief college experience at Indiana University - Purdue University at Ft. Wayne).
Karma was a drama queen, not in a bad sense, but in a fun, hyperbolic sense. She was in the play "Grease" in High School. She didn't play a big part but should have because she was enormously talented and loved to sing. She was sarcastic and had a warped and morbid sense of humor. She loved horror movies and science fiction movies. She loved to read. She loved Anne Rice books and all the Harry Potter books. She watched cartoons well into her teenage years. I used to make fun of her for liking a kid's muppet-type show called "Fraggle Rock."
She used to watch disturbing movies with your Grandpa Larry Joseph Curtis, like "Eraserhead."
The last musical artist I recall her mentioning before she died were Keane and Beth Orton. She also liked Nora Jones and especially loved Aretha Franklin. And Nick Drake.

I found Kregg Snyder on facebook recently and he said this about Karma:
We had a flirty relationship. We would sneak off and kiss or a butt pinch here or there. We (me and a few band friends) Used to moo in the hall way to tease her till she got mad and scratched me. I still have that little scare on my arm from her. She had a great sense of humor but she didn't mess around when she got mad. She had the most beautiful eyes I think I have ever seen. I still can see them when I close my eyes. She always made me smile. I remember her having a party and we were kissing in her bedroom and the guys busted in on us. She pushed one of the guys down the stairs for coming in on us......I really miss her.....
I told Kregg about you, Bobby, and he said to tell you that if you ever want to look him up, he would tell you more about Karma. I hope someday your dad will tell you all about her.
