Dan and family,
I am sorry to hear of Kathy’s passing. I have fond memories from high school of friendship with Kathy and the family. God bless.
This is a sad day for us -yet a glorious day for Harry. Now you two can fish eternally in Heaven!We will miss you.

Dan and Family:
No parent should have to bury their child. Betty and I send our love and prayers to you and your family at this very sad time. You are in our thoughts and prayers and this week especially we are thankful to be with you in spirit. God bless you all.
Kathy will be missed for her caring ways and positive outlook on life. Her smile lit up a room. Students always found a caring heart and listening ear in Ms. Kaiser. I will miss Kathy’s nicknames for people and the way she could make someone’s day easier. Rest in Peace Kathy.
You will be dearly missed.
Kathy, I knew I should have written you first or Pete would tell all. I would not have changed anything about our friendship when we grew up. You always had a smile on your face except when I harassed you to no end. You were ALWAYS fun to be around! Pete pretty well described things, but I have a few more than him because I lived next store to you and he didn’t…We’ll all miss you greatly and don’t worry about your Dad, Karen or Toby. We’ll be there for them forever. Tell Harry and Claire Hi! I love you. Pat
I will never forget 40 years ago when Pat Kemper told me about the new neighbors moving in next to him and that they had 3 kids. Who would have thought what that day would mean to both of us. Now when I look back I just smile, the Green Hornet soccer team, the Tuesday night softball games at Caldwell, the pool in the backyard. I Remember sitting on the side porch as your mom would be spraying it off because somebody said a bad word, that porch sure did get sprayed a lot back then. Remember when we got older and Pat got the blue Duster and we would drive around without a care in the world and think we were hot.
Fast forward to last month when Karen, you, and I sat at the kitchen table and talked about the old times and what a great time it was. I asked you what I could do you and in your typical fashion you told me don’t worry about me take care of Danny. You don’t have to worry about that we’ll take care of Danny, you can count on that. When I got ready to leave you got up and walked me to my car and gave a big hug and told me you loved me, that moment will never be forgotten. As I looked out at your backyard when I drove away I just smiled and said thanks for the memories and everything you did for me.
Kathy is loved and remembered by all of the staff and students at Winton Woods Middle School. Her friendship and big smile will be missed.
I will forever remember Kathy’s sense of humor, infectous laugh, and the fun our families had growing up together. I loved her dearly and will miss her always.
How lucky we were to live next door to the Kaisers. You all have a very special place in my heart.
If I can do anything at all for you, please let me know.
