  3. Don, Michael, Tonya and all the family so sorry for your loss of Karen. So many funny, crazy and good memories of Karen and all of you. Got to visit with her quite a few times at the bank but we just didn’t have enough time to talk since she was working. Had a great big smile on her face when she saw me coming. I know she will be missed very much by each of you. But praying that God will wrap his arms around all of you. RIP Karen
