    To Mrs. Hamm, Kaethe and Kerry…at times such as this, words are never enough. Our families have been connected for so many years that Karen’s passing is like losing a member of our own.

    Karen was someone that could light up a room with her smile. Our paths haven’t crossed much in recent times but her absence won’t go unnoticed.

    My sincere hope and prayer for each of you is the grief is short and fond memories long.

    Love and hugs to all.

    I never met Karen in person, but I feel as if I knew her. For all the years my husband and I have been customers of Arkansas Federal Credit Union, Karen patiently helped us with any and all questions over the telephone. Even when I asked her for information in areas not related to our loans, she always took the time to try to help. My prayers and condolences are with her family.
