In the 8-1/2 year of history of Real Pro Systems, we have never had to collectively deal with the death of a team member. In general, our employees are a young and vibrant group of people; death seemed beyond us all. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kristi Healy, our beloved Client Care Representative, at the tender age of 37. Kristi joined Real Pro Systems in July of 2006. She brought a sunny disposition, a positive attitude, and a willingness to consistently go the extra mile for our clients. Kristi thrived on solving problems, bending over backward to satisfy even the most unreasonable demands. She was beloved by her fellow workers as well as the countless REALTORS who loved working with her. Real Pro Systems consistently received kudos from her clients.
This past spring, Kristi was diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma. While often curable, at the time of her diagnosis her disease was already advanced. Not one to ever give up or utter a discouraging word, Kristi bore the challenge gracefully and as cheerfully as anyone could possibly do. Despite access to the best care available and the most elaborate procedures known, Kristi’s body succumbed to the overwhelming toll exacted upon it on Sunday, October 16th. We are in shock, in that we thought she was winning the battle. We trust that Kristi has found relief from the ravages she endured. But our sense of disbelief, our sense of loss is profound. Many of you who worked with Kristi will share in these feelings. Our employees are carrying on as you would expect them to do, but you can see the pain in the eyes of all. We didn’t lose a co-worker, we lost a family member. Kristi, we miss you already; this place just won’t be the same without you. Our hearts and prayers go out to her husband, two children, and her extended family. The RPS team is doing all it can to assist Kristi’s family in a time of great need.
