I was so sorry to hear of Kara. I worked with her at Peopl’s Bank. She was a very well liked person . The customers loved her. She would look out for them and serve them well. I loved hearing about her weekend in the summer with her girlfriends. She will be missed greatly. May the memories that you hold be comfort to you. She had a love for life and enjoyed others accomplishiments. She will be someone that I will remember always. Her and I loved to collect rocks and we both loved plants, especially the hibiscus that bloomed so wonderfully. I will continue to lift you in my prayers and I pray that God’s perfect peace that passeth all our human understanding be yours through out the days ahead.
