    I didn’t know Ms. Reiser, but I know her son Zach very well. If he is anything like her, she was an amazing woman and a loyal, loving person. I regret that I never got to meet her and enjoy her company. I send all my love and prayers to her family and friends at this very difficult time.

    I will never forget her laugh. What a fantastic laugh she had! If you weren’t laughing when she started laughing, you would be before she stopped. My childhood was deeply affected by her selfless nature and her simple and happy life. Oh, how I love her Swedish pancakes she would make me on the weekends when I was hanging with Krista and babysitting little baby Zach. Lova ya, Micki. Give Wayde a kiss and grandma and grandpa a hug for me.

    Im so sorry for your loss Zach and to the rest of your family. I know your mom loved you very much and was proud of you and the man you grew up to be. I know this because she told me many times. The last time i saw her at Coborns she was telling me all kinds of good things about you and smiling the entire time as well as writing down how to see videos of you and your son on uTube. :) She is always with you, just in a different way.

    When I heard the news of Micki’s passing I was extremely shocked and saddened. I cannot imagine her not being at the RV Park smiling when I walk in the door, or her helping me. She was always so much fun and helpful. Loved her!! I am very sad that the last time I saw her was Memorial Day weekend, see my own mother passed away in June and we didn’t get to camp much this year. We usually go to Hinckley 5-6 times a year. We send our deepest condolences to her friends and family as I am sure she willed be greatly missed. God must have needed a very special angel.
