My heartfelt condolences to Dale and the entire Schwanekamp and Murphy families. I was so saddened to hear of our loss. Kathi was a true friend who was always there for anyone who needed her. She will be sorely missed here on earth but I am sure the Angels have welcomed her with open arms!

I worked with Kathi on many projects at HSBC and she always made it fun. Lighthearted craziness in the midst of her well planned and executed project. She always gave 110% to anything she did. My sincere condolences to Dale and the Murphy /Schwanekamp families. Kathi was so special she will be sorely missed.

Although I haven't seen Kathi in years she has left a big mark on my life. Kathi introduced me to camping way back when the girls from HSBC would get together for a weekend in Allegany. Her love of the outdoors was contagious. My Family has been camping in Allegany for about 25 years now and this tradition was inspired by Kathi. My deepest condolences go out to Dale and Kathi's Family and friends. May she rest in peace.
