Sad news for sure.

I talked to Todd (Beanpot) last night and he was really glad to hear from me, he has been through a lot, it is still shocking how fast this happened, she was only diagnosed in August and here we are in the first week of October, and she's gone.

 

If anyone wants to get in touch with Todd, or has plans on possibly attending the service in Greenville SC, let me know with a PM and I'll give you his contact info.

 

The family prefers no flowers or food or stuff like that, because both boys are leaving right after the service, one lives in Cleveland and one in California, so there is no one there to look after such things. But they certainly appreciate the sentiments, prayers and good will are the best things you can send them.

She also enjoyed baseball, gardening, crochet, and playing the piano.

She is survived by sons, Christopher (Ann Marie) of Bay Village, OH and Matthew (Galyna and grandson Andros) of Los Angeles, CA; brother, Philip (Denise) Sadowski of Kansas City, KS.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Susan Trzeciak.

I am so very sorry to hear this. I woke up today with an awful feeling that something was wrong. I so wish it wasn't this. My deepest condolences to Todd and to Kathy's family. They are in my thoughts and prayers. I always enjoyed my contact with Kathy here. It was my private thing that my own sister's name is Cathy so it was Kathy and Heidi here. My sister is also going thru cancer again as well. But this sad news today was so sudden. She was such a funny, strong and enthusiastic and knowledgeble woman. Rest in peace Kathy. You will always be a presence here. God bless and keep you. You have touched many people.

I had never met her, but you know, she just looks like she would be nice.

I've never agreed with you more...

 

Thanks for the words because for once I had none...

If I were to use just one word to describe Kathy, it would be that one. Because that's exactly what she was...Nice.

It's so great to read all of these wonderful messages. I have to tell you all that I was able to share many of them with Kathy a couple of weeks back. I haven't been here often over the last several years and I didn't recognize many of the user names, but Kathy would slightly shake or nod her head when I tried to guess the identity of the poster. She corrected me more times than I care to admit but it shows she was very aware of all of the great support.

 

Just to address one thing that Rich mentioned up thread, I deeply apologize if any of you feel slighted by having to learn of this via the board and not personally. I asked John (Zombo) to keep things private and he did exactly that at my request and with Kathy's support. We had both hoped that there would be a time where her condition stabilized enough so that we could bring all of you in but that just never occurred. Rich, it was great talking to you today. Please know that all of the love you showed her over the years meant more to her than anything you could have done these last few weeks.

 

Just a note to Doug (Furnier) - I'm really sorry you're having to go through this with your Mom. I did have to laugh about your "glue in the crazy jigsaw puzzle" line.

Sorry, sent too soon - meant to include that Doug's comment about following the various forms of this board was spot on - if Kathy was there, it meant it was home.

Yep, exactly that. A word that's often used to conveniently define someone while politely not mentioning their faults. Not in her case - Kathy was truly nice.

I wanted to stop by and give my condolences to the Browns Board and to Kathy's family and friends.

 

I never got the pleasure of meeting her in person but we were friends on Facebook and I always thought she was a wonderful lady. She had a knack of putting folks in their place without going all postal and was an overall calming influence. She knew her Tribe and Browns, that was for sure. I found out about her passing on another board, that is how well appreciated she was.

 

I hate to see cancer take someone who still had a lot of life left. She deserved to be here when the Browns turn this thing around and it is close. No doubt that the history making Titans game was for her.

 

RIP Kathy, you will be missed.

Just so you guys know, her service was beautiful and the Minister did make a point of mentioning her love of the Browns. That love includes every single one of you.

 

Thank you all.

She was blessed to have you in her life Beans.

Same goes for you, Ghoolie. I saw those beautiful pictures she took of your studio and she always spoke very highly of you. I guess we were all blessed to be a part of her life. I know she had a huge smile on her face watching the game today :-)

Thanks for everything you have done Todd. Much appreciated. RIP Kathy.

I somehow reached my quota of "positive posts" today, I tried to do that with your post. Thanks for the thanks. Thank you even more for being her friend, you're a good man!

I never got a chance to really know Kathy. I think that was my loss.

 

I remember competing against her in fantasy football, we fought in one game tooth and nail. back and forth

 

It all came down to a monday night game that I eeked out. She sent me a congratulatory albeit short note the next day

but also reminding me that she would get me the next time. And dammit she did.

 

Kathy today was for you, all that hard work blood, sweat and tears bringing back the team that you loved.

 

We competed today all over the football field and my friend Neil and I raised a glass in your honour and spirit

 

Because this one was for you and everyone that you influenced to stay the course, keep with the team because good things were gonna happen.
