You left your mark by making the world a better place. I was blessed to have you as a friend and will always celebrate the goodness you brought to every circumstance. Until we meet again my friend.

We are heartbroken to hear of Kathy's passing. Kathy volunteered at Abigayle for over a year and she had such a servant heart. She shared stories of caring for her mom and how she knew how important it was for caring for family. Kathy attended our Christmas volunteer potluck and we laughed and enjoyed the time together. Kathy will truly be missed in our ministry. May God's grace be abundant her family and friends remember the joy she brought to their lives.

To Brian and Family,

I had Kathy as a student at Central Michigan University and later hired and worked with her in Detroit. I remember her smile, her warm friendly personality, her willingness to help, her professionalism and her laughter. She was delightful and fun to have as a student and a friend. She talked often about her family and the love she had for all of you. I am so very sad. My sympathy, thoughts and prayers are sent to you.

My deepest sympathy to the Reichmann and Ziarko family. I worked with Kathy at St. John/MRG. I would like to take a moment to celebrate Kathy's life. Kathy had a beautiful smile and comical personality that made people enjoy being around her. She would joke with me and say "I keep trying to tell my husband that I am arm candy". We would also shared our love for travel and reading, discussing our last vacation or book we had read.

My heartfelt sympathy to the Reichmann and Ziarko family.
I met Kathy at Holy Cross Hospital so many years ago. Her bright smile, quick sense of humor and positive perspective on life always helped to me during stressful and busy shifts in the emergency department. I was so happy to see her at VA hospital when came there. Over the years we shared happy and sad times. Kathy lovingly spoke of her husband and boys over the years. I will never forget our conversations. I will miss my girlfriend. Peace to her family during this difficult time.

To the Reichmann Faimily:

I am sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is never easy. However, as the minutes turn to hours, days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months, and months turn to years, I hope your pain grows less, but your fond memories grow more. I am sure your family will pull together and be strong for one another. It is at times like this, that we all realize just how short, and precious life really is. May God be with you all during these trying times. Take Care!

Mrs. Reichmann thank you for always welcoming me into your home and making me feel like part of your immediate family. Your kindness, generosity, inspiration and confidence in me has always helped keep me motivated to excel. I always enjoyed sharing both my successes and failures with you. Whether it was time to celebrate or I needed a pep talk, I could always count on a warm bowl of specially made Reuben soup. Thank you for making this world a
