The moment Karen met Santa this year is now going viral.
The woman's family arranged for Karen, who is in the final stages of dementia, to meet Santa at a photography studio in New Mexico.
When she sat with the big man in the red suit, her reaction was priceless. Karen has loved Santa her entire life.
Hartsocks' Photography posted the photos of the two meeting on Facebook and described the experience, "Every time Santa got close to her, she would nuzzle in and close her eyes as if there was no place she would rather be."
