My condolences to the Kappes family. I have never met my aunt Violet, but through conversations with Diane I have an insight as to who my aunt Violet was. May she rest in peace as she is now with her family again.

Joe, Ronnie and Jerry, I was sorry to read of your mother's passing. I was your neighbor on Grant Street when we were in grade school. I can remember her and my mother leaning over the fence talking. I guess she would have been in her 20's then. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of mourning.
