My condolences to all of the family. Karen was always so cheerful to around. I enjoyed her many years of working at Bank of America. As a long time customer, Karen was always the friendly face at the end of a busy work day.

I worked with Karen at Citizens National Bank before she went to American Bank. She was always such a joy to be around. May God comfort you all during your time of sorry and healing. I know you will truly miss her.
