Northeastern Wisconsin has lost one of their dearest friends in Reiny. With Reiny's thought provoking monthly writings as the featured front page columnist for 13 years for the Together In Faith newspaper he was a guiding light for many. Rita and family, our hearts and prayers are with you always. We will miss our dear friend Reiny in many ways. Reiny was our mentor in publishing the TIF paper. I can hear him now, "Keep a thick skin." Our Deepest Sympathy and Blessings, Pat and Mary Kiley

The community and your family has lost a wonderful person! Reiny was so friendly and eloquent at the ambo. His warm smile lightened the room. He always made a point to make conversation when I would be scheduled to lector. I know that you who have known him so much longer will really miss him. My heart and prayers go out to you and know that God will keep you, as He always has. To have had Reiny in one's life shows that God is looking down on us.
